Exploring How Neurons Talk Each Other
SYNAPTIC COMMUNICATION LABORATORY
Our research aims to understand the concepts and mechanisms which underlie the complexities of the Brain. We use state-of-the-art technologies to explore how neurons connect and communicate with each other, how this connection
and communication are altered in neural diseases.
NEURAL COMMUNICATION AND ITS REGULATION AT SYNAPSES
We are interested in studying the Neuron and Synapses
which shape and guide the processes of the Brain.
Our long-term goal is to understand the underlying mechanism
of How neurons communicate with each other through Synapses.
Our major questions in research
How do neurons are connected in networks?
How do they communicate with each other once connected?
How do neural diseases alter this basic functionality?
Live-cell trace for synaptic physiology
Synaptic vesicle fusion and retrieval using a pHluorin-based assay, Calcium sensor, and other fluorescence sensors combined with a high-fidelity custom-built microscope system
HIGH FIDELITY LIVE IMAGING
To monitor synaptic physiology with high accuracy,
We utilize a custom-built laser illuminating imaging system.
It leads us to observe various synaptic events from a single synaptic vesicle at the millisecond scale.
