Research Description


In my PhD research, I investigated some effects of estrogen on vascular smooth muscle cells. In the 3 months visiting to Department of Pharmacology in Fukushima Medical University, I studied and performed some patch clamp experiments on astrocytes. During the period of postdoctoral training, I worked on the purinergic signaling research in vascular endothelial cells.

Recently, I am interested in neuroscience reading and teaching, and wondering the biological mechanisms of human mind,emotion,and behavior.
