Gap junctions and hemichannels are formed by Connexins and Pannexins/Innexins. How is gating controlled? How is formation and removal controlled?
Pablo E. Castillo, M.D., Ph.D.
understand how neural activity controls the strength of synaptic connections in the brain -- a process known as synaptic plasticity -- and how dysregulation of this process contributes to brain disease states
