Neurotransmission, Cell signaling, Amyloid and Tau

Much work has been done on pathological processes in AD. However, how these processes regulate, or are regulated by, neurotransmission and related cell signaling remain largely unknown. I am interested in studying the physiological and patho-physiological interactions between neurotransmitter receptor function / signaling, beta-amyloid protein processing and tau phosphorylation.
