[Laboratory]
Laboratory for Synaptic Plasticity and Connectivity, Center for Brain Science (Laboratory Head: Dr. Yukiko Goda)

[Keywords]
Neuron, Synapse, Molecular Biology

[Research field]
The Goda lab studies activity-dependent changes in the efficacy of information transmission across synapses, which are crucial for how the brain reacts to the environment, learns and stores memories. Focusing on the hippocampus and starting from the properties of individual synapses of specific connections, we study the cellular and molecular basis for their interactions with neighboring synapses, neurons and astrocytes in shaping the population activity that supports hippocampal circuit functions and behavior. To address these questions, we take a bottom-up approach using electrophysiology and fluorescence live-imaging in combination with methods of molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry.
