Research

The goal of my laboratory is to identify neuronal mechanisms and biochemical pathways underlying the regulation of ion channels for 7-TM receptors and drugs. The main projects in my lab include:

1) Understanding the mechanisms of action of antidepressants drugs on neurons.

2) Understanding the role of G gamma subunits in the modulation of calcium channels.

3) Understanding the modulation of potassium channels by angiotensin II.
