Structure-function of brain circuits in relation to stroke. High resolution imaging of individual synapses and sensorimotor circuits in live mice to provide insight into mechanisms of initial stroke damage and stroke recovery. We are currently focusing on understanding how sensory and motor circuits compensate after stroke. CNS synaptic plasticity/physiology: in vivo imaging of synaptic interactions and sensorimotor processing, novel brain mapping procedures using optogenetics, and single synapse biophysical approaches. Imaging neurochemistry during stroke. Monitoring of oxidative stress and ionic disturbances in vivo and testing of novel antioxidant treatments during stroke.
