Our research program seeks to understand the mechanisms by which signal transduction pathways modulate neurotransmission and consequently, behavior. I am particularly interested in presynaptic mechanisms that control synaptic transmission and how such modulatory mechanisms impact the neural control of locomotor behaviors coordinated by spinal pattern generators.
