Molecular Mechanisms of Synapse Coordination
Every thought and action we experience is elegantly organized by passing information through specific, specialized connections in the brain called synapses. Yet, we fundamentally do not understand how the many different types of synapses form during development, nor how they coordinate their numbers to balance one another in a neural circuit. This proposal explores the mechanisms by which synapses coordinate their development which is critical for us to understand the basis of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and epilepsy, and for us to devise rational therapeutic interventions.
