    Brief synopsis of project: Correct functioning of the nervous system requires formation and maintenance of synaptic connections between neurons. Defects in these connections can contribute to neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease. The main aim of the project is to determine how dynamic properties of intracellular signalling networks across neuronal populations influence integration of single neurons into synaptically active circuits. This project makes use of excellent local infrastructure for proteomics, dynamic imaging and actuation, lab automation and screening to determine the causal relationships between changes in the synaptic proteome, signalling networks at the single cell level and integration into interacting cell circuits.
