Traumatic brain injury is a major risk factor for the development of epilepsy.  I am interested in understanding how the disruption in signaling between neurons and glial cells allows the synchronous excitability seen during seizure activity.  I am evaluating how attenuated gliotransmission from astrocytes affects the frequency and severity of seizures after injury through the use of continuous video-EEG recordings.
