The laboratory studies the cell biology of neural stem cells in normal development and in neurodevelopmental disorders with a current focus on autism and Fragile X syndrome (FXS). Our research uses a knockout mouse model of Fragile X syndrome to study the effect of the affected gene on stem cell lineage biology. A variety of methods are used to evaluate how astrocytes can correct the neuronal phenotype in autism.
Tissue culture, neural stem cells, Fragile X knockout mouse, astrocytes, immunocytochemistry, confocal microscopy and imaging.
