We study the mechanisms of synaptic transmission in the central nervous system, mainly focused on the kinetics regulation of exo-endocytosis, synaptic plasticity and the modeling of vesicle recylcing. Projects include:1) the mechanisms of calcium controlled exo-endocytosis; 2)calcium and exo-endocytosis affected synaptic plasticity;3) The modeling of neurotransmitter release and vesicle recycling.
