Cerebrovascular regulation.

Dr. Park is interested in understanding the regulatory mechanisms of cerebrovascular microcirculation that insure a constant supply of blood to the brain at all times. To study the regulatory mechanisms in normal and diseased brain, Dr. Park employs a combination of in vivo and in vitro techniques, including craniotomy, electrophysiology, immunofluorescence, molecular biological techniques, and behavioral analysis. The brain is highly dependent on a well-regulated blood supply in order to function normally. Abnormalities in the mechanisms are implicated in various cerebrovascular diseases, including stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Park's research focuses on a role of vascular factors, such as ß-amyloid and tissue plasminogen activator, in the mechanisms of cerebrovascular regulation and the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cerebrovascular alterations leading to behavioral abnormalities. For more information, please visit our website at:http://www.cornellneurology.org/neurobiology
