Monoclonal Antibodies to Synaptic Constituents
The major goal of our laboratory is to understand how chemical synapses are formed, maintained, and modified during development. We are trying to delineate the sequence of events that occurs during synapse formation and identify the molecular changes that underlie this sequence of interaction between defined neuronal and target types.
