Our research interests are to understand the molecular mechanisms of neurological and neuromuscular diseases based on personal genome analysis. We focus on 1) exploring genetic factors associated with Parkinson’s disease and understanding their pathophysiological roles,2) exploring molecular basis of higher brain function such as memory and general intellectual ability.
