Research Interests

Our lab studies NMDA receptors, focusing on their role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia and the treatment of depression. Current projects in the lab examine the plasticity of neural circuits that are relevant to schizophrenia, and the changes in synaptic biochemistry and morphology that occur when NMDA receptors are dysfunctional.

F. (416) 813-5028

Research Interests

Our research focuses on how membrane traffic is controlled by SNARE proteins and by the septin proteins of the cytoskeleton. We study this in the context of neurotransmitter release and in cell division.

Research Interests

We study how the brain learns to control motor behavior. To understand the mechanisms, we need to know more about the principles of control in general; hence we see our field as a branch of mathematical control theory, with extra, biological constraints.
