How does nanoplastics affects synaptic transmission in our brains?
Project Description

Nanoplastics are widely used in daily life. How nanoplastics affects our health remains elusive. In particular, how nanoplastics affects synaptic transmission in our brains is important but remains elusive. We investigate how nanoplastics affect synaptic transmission using advanced imaging.
