Understanding structural and functional changes that occur at the specialized junctions between neurons (synapses) that lead to changes in brain function, including pioneering use of imaging techniques to study the structure and function of single synapses in complex networks in the intact brain; using these tools to better understand fetal alcohol syndrome and other developmental exposures that affect the brain.
