My major research interest is to characterize endogenous protective mechanisms of the brain (i.e., neurogenic neuroprotection) and utilize these as a therapeutic modality in stroke. Currently, I am working on electrical and chemical stimulation of the parasympathetic system in rodent models of cerebral ischemia.
