Unfolding neural mechanisms by Ca2+ signaling-based research

Ca2+ signaling is one of the principal signaling mechanisms regulating myriads of cellular functions. Our research on the basic principles of Ca2+ signaling has led to the development of a new method for specific inhibition of Ca2+ signaling, which has allowed us to identify hitherto unrecognized functions of Ca2+ signals in the brain. We are currently extending these lines of research using new imaging methods.
