Our lab at Loma Linda University in southern California primarily uses animal models of neurological disease to understand their mechanisms and potential therapeutic treatments. Techniques used include behavioral assessment (e.g., water maze) of rats and genetically modified (transgenic / knockout) mice, pharmacology (e.g., manipulation of behavior with various drugs), small animal surgery (e.g., intracardial perfusion, electrolytic brain lesions, induction of ischemic stroke), histology / immunohistochemistry (e.g., visualization of amyloid plaques in brain slices), stereological microscopy (unbiased quantification of brain structures under a microscope), and biochemistry (e.g., protein assays of brain tissue using Western blot and ELISA).
