About Diasynou

I received my Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston under the mentorship of John H. Byrne. For my postdoctoral training I moved to Harvard Medical School in the lab of Wade Regehr. I came to UC Davis in the spring of 2014, where I am an assistant professor in the department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior.

About the lab

My lab studies the synaptic and cellular neurophysiology of small neural networks in the context of learning and memory. We are particularly interested in understanding the activity-dependent principles that govern the formation of anatomical and dynamic functional microcircuits as well as identifying novel neural networks that regulate learning and memory. Our toolbox includes transgenic mice, in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, calcium imaging, molecular biology and animal behavior assays.
