We use state-of-the-art quantitative optical techniques to study how neurons meet their metabolic needs during activity

The two pathways described above represent acute regulatory mechanisms for stimulation of glycolytic and mitochondrial ATP production which ensure the bioenergetic integrity of synapses during electrical activity. We now seek to determine how neurons achieve metabolic plasticity when facing energetic stress.
