From 1995 to 2005 I participated in basic science research
migration disorders of human brain development.
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.
