Research Interests:

My research interests include examining the underlying mechanism between early life seizures and the development of autistic-like behavior. Specifically, whether the link between PI3K/Akt/mTOR and pro-inflammatory cytokine signaling plays a role in this comorbidity. I am also interested in the neuroinflammatory profile of Fmr1 knock out mice, in which mutations in FMR1 serve as the largest monogenic cause of autism. samfun
