Plasticity of synaptic transmission – mechanisms and age-related aspects.
Recent interests include the examination of mechanisms involved in the plasticity of GABA-ergic synaptic transmission in the mammalian central nervous system. We are also analyzing age-relatedness of this plasticity.
Dr. Sastry’s research has been funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, USA.
