 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My current research interests and endeavors are in the realm of educational scholarship, especially in learning technologies. My scientific interests lie in the cellular morphology of the central nervous system, and aging, specifically the effects of advancing age on the ability of motor neurons to regenerate axons following injury. Techniques included light and electron microscopy in conjunction with morphological, cytochemical and immunocytochernical analyses.
