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

Administrative Roles:

 

Research Interests:

  • Synaptic, cellular and behavioral plasticity in mouse models of autism and Parkinson's disease
  • Development of cortical and striatal connectivity
  • Role of cell adhesion molecules in establishing connectivity and function

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.
