Student Profile: Jay Garaycochea

My name is Jay Garaycochea, and I am a Ph.D candidate in the neuroscience program at the University at Buffalo.  I am a graduate assistant  in Dr. Malcolm Slaughter’s lab, which focuses on understanding the information processing in the retina.  The project I am working on is investigating the role glycine receptors play in synaptic transmission, specifically a glycine effect that utilizes a metabotropic signalling pathway.  Methodologies used to approach this problem include electrophysiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology.
