Mechano
Mechanobiology and Ion Channels

We are attempting to answering the question of

‘How physical forces affect neural cells and contribute to physiology and brain disorders?’

“What is the roles for ion channels in the nervous system?’

1. Neural Cell based Mechanobiology and underlying Brain Disorders

(Neural Stem Cells, Synaptic Transmission in the brain, Sensory Transduction)

2. Activation Mechanism and the physiological roles of Ion Channels in the Nervous System
