Welcome to the Misono lab. Our lab is a part of the Graduate School of Brain Science at Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, as the section of Ion Channel Pathophysiology. The lab launched in 2006 at the University of Maryland and moved to Kyoto in April 2012.
Our research focuses on the Neurobiology of ion channel regulation. Ion channels are the heart of neurons. They are the engine that generates electrical signals for neurons to transmit signals, to communicate each other, and to compute. We aim to understand how hundreds of different ion channels work in individual neurons, in neural network, and in animals.
