I started working in the laboratory №3 in 2018. At first I joined the investigation of differentiation of neural progenitor cells isolated from the hippocampus of Krushinsky–Molodkina (KM) rats genetically prone to audiogenic seizures. The results showed that neural progenitors of KM rats demonstrated aberrant differentiation with high production of excitatory glutamatergic neurons probably contributing to the hereditary epilepsy development. Currently I am engaged in study of mechanisms regulating functional state of the hippocampus and nigrostriatal system under simulated microgravity.
