Members of the Madison Lab
Daniel V. Madison, Ph.D.
Lab Alumna Featured in Fellowship Report
Madison Lab Alumna Adrienne Orr, PhD is featured in The Porter Fellowship at 50, a publication commemorating the 50th anniversary of the American Physiological Society's Porter Physiology Development Fellowship.
Kristina Micheva, Ph.D.
Senior Research Scientist
Kristina Micheva is interested in a wide variety of problems related to the structure and function of neural circuits. She is co-inventor of the array tomography technique, and has been a leader in the application of this technique to interesting neurobiological questions. Her current projects include the characterization of proteins at identified synapses in neocortex and the study of myelination of inhibitory interneuronal axons.
Jason Clark, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Jason Clark researches the cellular mechanisms modulating synaptic transmission and plasticity, and how these mechanisms may influence neural circuit dynamics involved in cognitive functions such as learning and memory. In addition, he is interested in understanding how these mechanisms may change under pathological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Dong Li, Ph.D.
Dong Li is interested in elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying learning, memory and neurodegenerative diseases in the mammalian brain. His current projects involve the study of the roles of NMDA receptors, AMPA receptors and CB1 receptors in synaptic plasticity and Alzheimer’s disease.
Marianna Kiraly, Ph.D.
Marianna Kiraly is focusing on studying how the induction of certain synaptic plasticity states between pairs of pyramidal neurons correlates with the resulting anatomical changes (postsynaptic density, volume of postsynaptic spines, glutamate receptor transportation). Another one of her current projects addresses the significance of axon myelination in signal transmission between interneuron – principal neuron pairs (multiple sclerosis model).
