Professional Summary:
Dr. Anna Dunaevsky is a Professor of Developmental Neuroscience at the University of Nebraska Medical Center for Genetics and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She received her postdoctoral training studying neuronal development at Columbia University. The research in her lab focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the formation, maintenance, and modification of synapses in the brain.  Central to her work is the use of experimental models for human neurodevelopmental disorders and the study of learning induced changes in synaptic structure and function.

Research Interests and Projects:
Synaptic development, experience dependent plasticity, Neuron-Glia interaction, neurodevelopmental disorders, autism spectrum disorders, Fragile X Syndrome, dynamics of Cerebellar Purkinje Dendrites
