Dr. Balaji Krishnan, PhD, is a Primary Faculty member of the Mitchell Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.


Previous extracuticular and single unit electrophysiological studies in the invertebrate genetics model, Drosophila melanogaster, have shown to be an excellent model to study excitable cells. In this webinar, Dr. Balaji Krishnan discusses the techniques used to describe multimodal specificities in the olfactory receptor mutants using electroantennograms, an extracuticular technique looking at summated receptor potentials.  In addition, chemical and electrical potentiation field potentials and whole cell patch clamp techniques to investigate synaptic function in the amygdala and hippocampus, and thus signaling pathways in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases will be provided.
