Thanks to Jon, Eden, and Lindsay for helping out with the NIED program today! http://neuroscience.ucdavis.edu/grad/outreach/
One of the rare moments everyone is in the lab at the same time! No, we didn’t plan to all wear flannel, and no, I don’t have an abnormally long left arm. L-to-R: Jon Wong, Sunny Zhang, Haley Martin, John
Excited to have Lindsay Cameron from the Neuroscience Graduate Group rotating this quarter!
Thanks to Eden for participating in the Brain Awareness Week events at the Center for Neuroscience!
Congratulations to Jonathan Wong for passing his qualifying exam and becoming an official PhD candidate!!
Excited that Eden has decided to join the Gray Lab! Eden graduated from UC Irvine where she worked in the lab of Diane O’Dowd studying how mutations in the gene for the voltage-gated sodium channel NaV1.1 lead to epilepsy.
Gray JA, Zito K, and Hell JW (2016). Non-ionotropic signaling by the NMDA receptor: controversy and opportunity. F1000Research, 5(F1000 Faculty Rev): 1010. In collaboration with Karen Zito and Johannes Hell, I recently reviewed the emerging literature on possible non-ionotropic signaling
Happy to have Eden Barragan from the Neuroscience Graduate Group rotating in the lab!
Was excited to be able to contribute to an elegant study from the Zito Lab showing that NMDA receptor-mediated spine shrinkage requires glutamate binding but not ion flux through the channel, supporting recent studies showing that the NMDA receptor can
Our proposal entitled “Genetic ‘Saturation’ of the NMDA Receptor Glycine Co-Agonist Site” was selected for a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. We are interested in understanding the fundamental basis for the unique requirement of NMDA
