March Profile-Dr. Evanna Gleason

Coming soon…evanna_gleasonNow for something completely different…Synaptic Transmission Research.

I am pleased to be featuring Dr. Evanna Gleason.  I selected her because She and her team’s research is a basic component of most areas  Neuroscience Research including pain, neurodegeneration, vision, TBI, SCI, drug addiction, neuro-disorders and more…This base component is how neurons communicate with other cells at synapses. 

She focuses on synaptic transmission in the vertebrate retina. Retinal neurons have distinctive anatomical and physiological properties that suggest they employ unique synaptic mechanisms. The long term objective her research is to understand how retinal synapses are specialized to transmit visual information.

More to come in March!
