M Bruce MacIver
Professor (Research) of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study drug effects on the nervous system. Cellular, synaptic and molecular drug actions are investigated using electrophysiological and pharmacological tools in cortical/hippocampal brain slice preparations. We are also interested in mechanisms of neuronal integration and synchronization, especially related to patterns of EEG activity seen in vivo and in brain slices.

Edward R. Mariano, MD, MAS
Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical research interests include the development of techniques and patient care pathways to improve postoperative pain control and other surgical outcomes in adults and children. I am particularly interested in regional anesthesia, the specific application of local anesthetics and adjuvants at the site of peripheral nerves, in the context of producing target-specific pain relief.
