Research Interests

Molecular and physiological mechanisms of neurotransmitter release in the central nervous system, modulation and plasticity of synaptic transmission, ion channel mutation and deficit neurotransmitter release related neurological disorders. Current research investigates the functional role of vesicular zinc release over neuronal excitability.
