Research Area:

Secretion is a principle function of a cell. Neurotransmitter and hormone secretion is triggered by increase in intracellular Ca concentration. We investigate mechanisms of neurotransmitter release from synapse and/or soma of a cell, and dopamine release physiology and diseases (addition-drug of abuse, Parkinson’s disease) by patch-clamp, membrane capacitance and carbon fiber electrodes and fluorescent optic measurements at 3 physiological levels: single cells, brain slices, and in vivo.
