Research Interest

Dr. Ogundele and his team currently studies aging and disease related changes in mGluR 2/3 distribution in the cortical layers 4-6 of neonates, adult and 6-OHDA lesioned mice. This study is aimed at demonstrating the re-distribution of mGluR 2/3 in the M1 of lesioned mice and how such re-distribution affects synaptic plasticity andmotor-cognitive functions.
