    Keywords: Cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying axon-target interactions in mammalian sensory pathways. Molecular mechanisms of sensory axon elongation and arborization. Activity-dependent refinement of synaptic connections. NMDA receptor-mediated development and patterning of sensory maps. Recent research focuses on the development and plasticity of the cerebral cortex and somatosensory pathways. We use molecular biology, in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, imaging, neuroanatomy and behavioral techniques to understand mechanisms underlying development of topographic maps, neural patterning, plasticity and neonatal injury-induced alterations in the trigeminal system.
