Differential regulation of kinetics and plasticity of glutamate release among presynaptic outputs of pyramidal neurons


Kirill Volynski is a Professor of Neuroscience at University College London. After establishing his laboratory at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology in 2006 (MRC Career Development Fellowship) he focused on studying the mechanisms of neurotransmitter release and synaptic plasticity. Volynski group established a powerful suite of quantitative imaging and computational modelling approaches that allow them to study the relationship between calcium entry and vesicular exocytosis, and to probe presynaptic ion channel function in individual small presynaptic terminals. His current research interests focus on how the presynaptic release machinery decodes calcium signals and translates them into the complex patterns of neurotransmitter release.
