Mechanism by which apoaequorin protects neurons from an ischemic stroke

Ischemia (stroke) causes excess calcium levels, which kills neurons. We demonstrated that the calcium binding protein apoaequorin (AQ) protects neurons from ischemic cell death. Furthermore, we...   Details

Mechanisms Underlying Perception of Speech

Our laboratory investigates the mechanisms of speech perception through the presentation of carefully constructed and/or modified speech stimuli to human research participants. Volunteers are asked...   Details

Mechanisms of Aging Related Extinction Deficits

The purpose of this project is to determine the neurobiological changes that are responsible for aging related cognitive decline. Adult, middle aged, and aged rats will be trained to assess cognitive...   Details

Mechanisms of bacterial-host interactions

The objective of this research is to determine the role of bacterial nutrient metabolism in its interaction with house plants. Bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella are major food-borne pathogens....   Details
