Olivier Thibault Ph.D.Pyramidal neuron caclium imaging

Concomitant glucose and calcium imaging during synaptic activation in the slice













Welcome to the Thibault research group at the University of Kentucky

Current lab interests include identifying the underlying mechanisms through which individual components of peripheral metabolic dysregulation (particularly hyperinsulinemia and hypercholesterolemia) impact brain function.

We focus on behavioral, electrophysiological, molecular, as well as calcium and glucose imaging techniques to identify alterations in neuronal function during aging and in Alzheimer's disease animal models.
