"Dr. Wu is an experienced electrophysiologist, with over seventeen years of research experience using a variety of electrophysiological techniques, including patch-clamp recordings from single dissociated neurons, cultured cells and brain slices, and extracellular (field potentials) and intracellular recordings from in vitro and in vivo animal models.
Recent ongoing research projects in Dr. Wu's laboratory include cellular and molecular mechanisms of epileptogenesis in animal models and in epilepsy human tissues; cellular and molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of neurodegeneration diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease; and structure-function relationship of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and nicotine addiction."
