My research focuses on how astrocytic glutamate reuptake develops in the cerebral cortex and how that development is altered in the injured brain. I am combining cutting edge electrophysiological and imaging approaches to measure astrocytic reuptake of glutamate and to better understand how astrocytes functionally mature.
