Hi, I am Misa. I have been studying the physiology of the synaptic microenvironment (synapse + glia + extracellular space) using various super-resolution techniques, including live STED microscopy and single-molecule localization microscopy. Using this expertise, I will reveal the nanoscale basis of learning and memory. Specifically I am focusing on the dynamic reorganization of the synaptic microenvironment which may drive synaptic plasticity.
