University, Portland, Oregon. Identifying ion channels that contribute to slow
afterhyperpolarization (sAHP) in hippocampus of the brain.
My research focuses on the neurological basis of the physiology and pathophysiology of
mammalian brain. I am particularly interested in ion channels, the membrane proteins that
underlie nerve impulse and synaptic transmission, which are crucial for the proper function of
brain for learning and memory, and brain circuit formation. Dysfunctions of ion channels are
involved in most of the neurological and neuropsychological disorders, such as epilepsy,
Parkinson?s disease and Alzheimer?s disease.
