    The primary focus of my research is developing the understanding of the mechanisms underlying spike timing-dependent plasticity in the developing mouse somatosensory cortex, particularly in regards to the purported role of presynaptic NMDA receptors. My current research employs whole cell patch clamp in acute brain slice preparations from both wild type and genetically altered animals.
