Professor, Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences

Research Interests:

Dr. Haas’ areas of research focus are autism, epilepsy, neuroplasticity and developmental neuroscience. In order to understand the neuron changes associated with these areas the Haas lab directly images neuron growth within the intact and awake embryonic brain. They image both rapid growth dynamics over seconds to minutes, and long term changes over days, to investigate mechanisms underlying normal and abnormal neuronal development.
