Jyothi Arikkath, Ph.D. Lab

Dr. Jyothi Arikkath studies the genetic and molecular regulation of neuronal formation and maintenance of synaptic connections. She investigates how changes at the level of synapses contribute to the ability to learn and retain memory, and how alterations in synaptic structure and function contribute to the pathology of autism and developmental disorders. The expectation is that these studies will significantly contribute to the development of medications that will aid therapy of these disorders.
