Molecular mechanisms of mammalian sensory system development, plasticity and repair

The long-term aim of our research is fourfold:

1) to determine the cellular circuitry responsible for the functional organization of sensory systems;

2) to uncover cellular and molecular principles controlling development of the mammalian peripheral and central nervous systems;

3) to assess the structural and functional consequences of peripheral and central nervous system injury;

4) to isolate effective strategies for repair of injuried neural tissue.

The rodent somatosensory system is being used as a model because of its stereotyped normal organization which lends itself to quantification, its known susceptibility to injury, and its clinical applications.
