Mechanics in nervous system development and pathology. We are taking an interdisciplinary approach to investigate how cellular forceslocal cell and tissue compliance and cellular mechanosensitivity contribute to CNS development and disease. Methods we are exploiting include atomic force microscopy, traction force microscopy, custom-built simple and complex compliant cell culture substrates, optical microscopy including confocal laser scanning microscopy and cell biological techniques.
