    Efferent innervation pattern of the peripheral vestibular sensory organs in chinchillas. Requisite techniques include: anterograde tracing of efferent projections with stereotactic injection of labeled tracer into efferent brainstem nuclei, performing neurosurgical brainstem midline incisions to isolate contralateral from ipsilateral projecting efferent fibers, microscopic cranial dissection to harvest peripheral vestibular sensory organs (crista and otolithic) and brainstem, microscopic microdissection of crista to remove excess stroma to facilitate flattening of organ in order to slide-mount for proper visualization of sensory epithelium, computer and microscopic analysis of sensory epithelium to map terminal efferent projection patterns.

    Summer 2000 - Thesis Dissertation for M.S. In Pharmacology, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, Dr. Paul Guth, Ph.D. (advisor)
    Exploring Allosteric Inhibition Of alpha9 nACh Receptors By Opioids In Hair Cells. A literature-based review exploring the novel finding of morphine inhibiting vestibular efferent nACh receptors, an exploration of allosteric theory, and a proposal for a hypothetical experiment to further characterize the nature of this unexpected antagonistic effect.
