Research Summary

Neuron-Glia Interactions in Neural Circuits

In the Agarwal laboratory, we combine optophysiological and advanced microscopic techniques, novel mouse genetics tools, single-cell gene expression methodologies, and the machine-learning based computational approaches to decipher cellular connectivity and molecular pathways by which neurons and glia interact, interconnect and integrate in the neural circuits. The focal aim of the laboratory is to understand the functional significance of these neuron-glia connections in the neural networks, and their role in cognition, learning, and memory. We study how disturbances in these fine cellular interactions can contribute to various neurological disorders ranging from multiple sclerosis to autism.
