    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our understanding of the rules that determine which synapses change during learning is still very limited. Since most of the synapses in a circuit are capable of plasticity, a given neural circuit has the potential to be modified in many different ways. What controls the recruitment of plasticity at one set of synapses versus another during a given learning experience? This overarching question is the focus of my research. Using single-cell patch-clamp recordings from cerebellar slice preparations, I am investigating what rules determine when and how synapses change during different types of motor learning.
