Voltage-gated ion channels are important determinants of neuronal excitability. The hippocampus and cortex are two key regions of the brain involved in normal processes such as learning and memory as well as disorders such as epilepsy. Dr Shah’s interests lie in understanding how voltage-gated ion channels activated at subthreshold membrane potentials affect hippocampal and cortical cell excitability under physiological as well as epileptogenic conditions.

Interests include, Cellular and molecular neuroscience; subcellular distribution and function of neuronal voltage-gated ion channels; neural dendrite physiology; synaptic integration; ion channel pharmacology; temporal lobe epilepsy.
