Research Interests
My research is looking at the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on the inhibitory system.  There is an increasing body of evidence showing of altered network activity in the early stages of AD, and while to an extent this could be due to changes in excitation, changes in the diverse, regulatory, populations of interneurons may be an important factor. As such I am looking at the changes to the inhibitory network in the hippocampus during the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease using immunohistochemistry.
