Caractérisation du rôle des LRRTMs dans la plasticité synaptique et la formation de la mémoire
Aperçu du projet
Dr. Connor’s projects have focused on elucidating the mechanisms governing synapse development, and how synaptic dysfunction is associated with neurologic disorders. Specifically, he has been investigating the role of synaptic adhesion proteins (SAPs), and uncovering the role of these proteins in synaptic formation. His first project identified how genetic reduction in a group of SAPs yielded impaired synaptic function, synapse density and long-term memory deficits. The second project focused upon proteins called MAM domain containing glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor proteins (MDGAs).
