Research & Publications

  • Between 1998 and 2003, worked at the Department of Neuroscience of “Tor Vergata University”, in the experimental group headed by Prof. P. Calabresi, using in vitro electrophysiological and pharmacological techniques to study the cellular mechanisms of synaptic transmission, synaptic plasticity and excitotoxicity in the rat striatal slice
  • In 2002, worked as Research Assistant at Department of Anatomy – School of Medical Sciences, University of Bristol, United Kingdom, in the experimental group headed by Prof. Graham L. Collingridge and Dr. John Isaac. By performing intracellular whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, studied the molecular mechanisms underlying trafficking of AMPA glutamate receptors at CA1 synapses in the hippocampus and the involvement of this process in synaptic plasticity. Also investigated the role of PI3 kinase and PKC in the synapse specificity of LTD
