Our research is focused on the investigation of glial cells and their role in information processing in the normal and diseased brain. We investigate the functional heterogeneity of astrocytes in different brain regions and aim at identifying how neuron-NG2 cell synapses influence brain signaling. A main topic is the the impact of astrocyte dysfunction on the pathogenesis of temporal lobe epilepsy, using tissue resected from patients with intractable epilepsy and animal models.
