George W Huntley, PhD

  • PROFESSOR | Neuroscience

Research Topics:

Anatomy, Autism, Axon Guidance, Brain, Cell Adhesion, Cerebral Cortex, Developmental Neurobiology, Electrophysiology, Extracellular Matrix, Memory, Neurophysiology, Neuroscience, Neurotransmitters, Regeneration, Synapses, Synaptic Plasticity, Synaptogenesis, Systems Neuroscience




Research Interests:

  • Synaptic plasticity and remodeling in health and disease
  • Development of cortical connectivity
  • Synaptic cell adhesion molecules

Dr. Huntley's laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches to investigate mechanisms through which strength and organization of synaptic connection are modified during development and throughout adulthood by experience or by genetic mutations that lead to autism or Parkinson's disease.
