My research focuses on the role of intracellular calcium in synaptic plasticity and the mechanisms of action of presynaptic (or prejunctional) autoreceptors.

A list of my internationally peer reviewed papers is available, as is a list of published abstracts.

For those less concerned with bandwidth, you may wish to view my publication gallery.

I currently have institutional web pages at the University of Birmingham, Department of Pharmacology (Oxford) and Christ Church College.
