L-type Ca2+ channel regulation of dendritic arborization  

Dendrite growth is a key step in the development of neuronal circuitry and is perturbed in epilepsy, autism and other neurological diseases. Electrical activity regulates the development and plasticity of dendritic arbors by activating L-type voltage gated Ca2+ channels (LTCs). The goal of this proposal is to understand how LTCs regulate dendritic growth and arborization.
