Molecular Mechanisms of Synaptic Plasticity
The Pak Lab focuses on experience-dependent remodeling of the brain. We are in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology at Georgetown University. We are interested in these research areas:
- 1) Mechanisms underlying learning and memory.
- 2) Homeostatic regulation of neuronal activity.
- 3) Cognitive dysfunction in neurodegenerative disease.
- 4) Synaptic tagging and AMPA receptor trafficking.
- 5) Metaplasticity of NMDA receptors.
