Membrane-bound matrix metalloproteinases influence reactive synaptogenesis following traumatic brain injury
My primary area of interest is traumatic brain injury (TBI). Previous work has focused on the role(s) that membrane-bound matrix metalloproteinases play in the process of reactive synaptogenesis. I am also interested in the impact that repetitive TBI, in sports for example, has on the progression of neurocognitive disorders.
