Kathryn Hixson

Kathryn’s research is focused on understanding the dynamic gene regulation of inhibitory neurotransmission and how it is altered in neurological diseases, such as epilepsy. Her current focus includes looking at the results of permanently increased BDNF levels in the brain after seizures and how it affects the GABA-A receptor.
