Our lab uses cutting edge molecular, electrophysiologic, anatomic and behavioral techniques to study the influence of stress and sleep on aging brain function. We are particularly interested in how these changes may set the stage for age-related vulnerability to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. In collaboration with other laboratories, we are also investigating myelin, vasculature, and glucose utilization-related issues using the aging rodent brain. Our lab also focuses on bioinformatic disciplines related to analysis and integration of large data sets within and across studies.
