Cortical spreading depression upregulates calcitonin gene-related peptide expression in the ipsilateral cerebral cortex


I am interested in the molecular mechanisms that contribute to psychiatric disorders, primarily those that are related to the HPA-axis. Using techniques that range from genetic analyses to behavioral assays, I hope to uncover some of the fundamental pathway aberrations that predispose people to developing psychiatric illnesses. I am also interested in developing pharmacological interventions that will give patients the ability to live happy and productive lives.
