Research Groups

Laboratory of Pathophysiology

[Verkhratsky Group]


The main research interests of this group are:

  • Role of NMDA and P2X receptors in regulation of glial homeostatic support.
  • Molecular physiology of astroglial sodium signaling.
  • Mechanisms of nanotubes induced morpholopgical plasticity of astroglia.
  • Astrocytes in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer's disease: pathological potential and possibilities of correction.
