Electrophysiological Recording Lab

The principal research interest of this laboratory is to understand the cellular / neurophysiological mechanisms underlying neuronal function with focus on the critical role of the hippocampus and other brain areas in neuronal plasticity.  Also we focus particularly on a remarkable form of synaptic plasticity known as long-term potentiation or LTP on hippocampus, single unit recording and field potential from brain nucleus, which are involved in processes of learning and memory.
