My laboratory is exploring the importance of novel GABA receptor populations in the control of our sleep/wake states. We use a combination of functional recording methods and high resolution imaging techniques to study the properties of neuronal populations in different brain regions. I work closely with Bill Wisden and Nick Franks in the Biophysics Section at Imperial College.
