robert s. mcneilFrom 1995 to 2005 I participated in basic science research investigating neuronal migration disorders of human brain development. 

Research focused upon the Lis1, Reelin, Dab1, and DCX genetic pathways and the cytoskeletal basis of neuronal migration. Mutations of these genes cause impairments of neuronal migration, positioning and connectivity that often produce seizures, epilepsy and premature death in affected individuals.  As part of this research I conducted experiments involving cell culture,
gene transfection and microsopic imaging of neurons and neuronal proteins.  The images shown on this website are representative of my work from the lab and are presented for educational purposes to stimulate interest in neuroscience research.  

If you have questions or comments about the images feel free to contact me.
