Our lab is interested in neuronal remodeling, which is critical for setting up the wiring diagram of the nervous system. When defective, it is implicated in a wide range of neuro-psychiatric disorders including autism, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s. Remodeling involves both degeneration and regeneration. Therefore, our studies have the potential to shed light on axon degeneration and regeneration during development, in disease and following injury.
