"I see first-hand how devastating these disorders can be and I meet the families who are looking for hope. Its incredibly motivating I lay awake thinking about these families because I know how badly they need cures and I know we can find them."

Overview

Research Description

Our research investigates brain functions in order to develop new ways to treat ? and potentially cure ? neurological disorders. We are particularly interested in how neurons form into networks, and how those networks turn on and off to create rhythms that direct the brain ? and the body ? to perform different functions. We take a collaborative approach to research, teaming up with experts in different disciplines ? from genetics to biology to engineering ? to study brain disorders and pursue cures.
