Emanuel Lopes

BSc (Hons) Neuroscience, University of Dundee


Postgraduate Student

I am a DPhil student in the Cragg Group, where I am studying the role of local striatal factors (such as GABA and acetylcholine) in regulating dopamine release, and how these factors could be altered in disease states such as Parkinson’s Disease. To study this, I have mainly employed electrochemical techniques such as fast-scan cyclic voltammetry and amperometry, optogenetics, and immunohistochemistry.

 

Prior to my time in Oxford, I underwent my honours year practical project under the supervision of Dr Andrew Irving in the University of Dundee, where I studied the role of the putative cannabinoid receptor GPR55 in neuronal development and disease.
