Extracellular cues shape GABAergic transmission in the developing hippocampus: the case of leptin
The present dissertation tackles the larger question of how external cues, including sensory stimulation, neuronal activity, neurotrophins and soluble factors from the periphery (hormones) impact the development of the ...
Molecular Mechanisms for Phosphoinositide Regulation of Cone Photoreceptor CNG Channel Gating
Photoreceptor cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels are critical for converting light inputs into electrical signals that are ultimately processed as visual information. However, it is not well understood how exactly ...
ELECTRICAL AND CHEMICAL MANIPULATION OF CORTICAL NETWORK STATES IN VITRO
Despite its profound impact on humanity, very little is known about the cellular and biochemical regulation sleep. A local use-dependent theory of sleep posits that sleep-wake cycling emerges through the consolidation and ...
