My lab is interested in how synaptic connections and neuronal circuits are formed during development, and how these processes may be disrupted in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. We use a variety of approaches, such as electrophysiology, structural and functional imaging, to investigate how neuronal activity regulates early synapse formation. In collaboration with clinicians, we are working to try to link their studies in human patients with our preclinical data, in the hope of finding new treatments for these disorders. I also lead the Medical Research Council-Sackler PhD programme in the Medical Research Council Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and am a FENS-Kavli Scholar.
