Welcome to the Bai Lab
Our research goal is to understand how synapses develop into functional circuits. Synaptic connections undergo constant fine-tuning to support information delivery and storage in the brain. Regulation of these connections can occur through altering the strength of existing synapses or through synapse assembly and disassembly. We utilize a combination of genetic, biochemical, imaging, and electrophysiological techniques to ask biological questions at the levels of individual synapses and functional circuits.
