Electrochemical Detection of Reactive Oxygen Species, Neurotransmitters, and Neuromodulators

The goal of this research is to simultaneously quantify the release/clearance dynamics of several reactive oxygen species and neurochemicals in intact brain tissue using electrochemical approaches. Our primary targets are dopamine, hydrogen peroxide, glucose, acetylcholine and several neuropeptides including met-enkephalin and neurotensin.
