HIV Neurophysiology

Huangui Xiong, MD, Ph.D. - University of Nebraska Medical Center, Center for Neurovirology and Neurodegenerative Disorders.

This project focuses on the mechanism(s) for how HIV-1-infected mononuclear phagocytes (brain macrophages and microglia) alter neural physiological processes (including modulation of synaptic transmission and plasticity and regulation of receptor / ion channel function) and lead to neural cell dysfunction or death during HIV-1-aossociated dementia.
