Primary
Methodologies:
Recombinant DNA, cell culture, in ovo electroporation, immunohistochemistry
Work Summary: Our work concerns development of hind-brain auditory circuits, with a particular emphasis on signaling mechanisms that control dendritic development. A particular focus is the neurotrophin family of neurotrophic factors, their receptors, and membrane proteins that control subcellular trafficking of these receptors.
