Description:

The Department of Physiology welcomes Dr. Helen Bateup, assistant professor, with University of California, Berkeley.

Research Focus:

Understanding the molecular machinery that allows neurons to both be dynamic and maintain balance is a fundamental goal of our research. Perturbations in synapse and circuit balance are associated with numerous neurological and psychiatric disorders, including epilepsy and autism spectrum disorder. A main focus of our laboratory is to understand how molecular changes associated with these diseases lead to altered neural development and activity. To address this, we are taking a multi-systems approach incorporating molecular, biochemical, electrophysiological, and behavioral analyses in mouse models and patient-derived human cells.
