Dr.Mila Emerald

Dr. M. Emerald, B.Sc., M. Sc., Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, and Dr. Sci. in Brain Research and Behavioral Neuroscience, boasts over 16 years of experience in laboratory science and over 25 years in applied science, technologies, and professional business.

Throughout her career, Dr. M. Emerald has utilized various research techniques, including:

  • Cellular electrophysiology: intracellular recording, both in vitro and in vivo, in neuronal cultures and brain slices, investigating neuronal networks, regulation of neuronal functions, and neuroplasticity under healthy and pathological conditions.
  • Extracellular recordings from single neuronal fibers, pools of neurons, multi-cell, and multi-unit setups, for behavioral experiments, antidromic and orthodromic activation, electrocardiography (EKG), electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potentials (EPs), and nerve conduction studies (NCS).
  • Patch clamp recording: whole cell, inside-out, outside-out, and single-patch configurations, along with voltage clamp and current clamp recordings, iontophoresis, and local drug application.
  • Various histological techniques utilizing fluorescent markers and antibodies, including fixation, dehydration, clearing, embedding, cryostat microtomy, staining, and mounting.
  • Imaging and microscopy techniques, such as optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and confocal microscopy for the three-dimensional reconstruction of neuronal tissues.
  • Behavioral and cognitive neuroscience: researching brain areas and processes responsible for animal/human activity, as well as the brain’s control of thought, language, problem-solving, and memory.

Dr. M. Emerald serves as a Consulting Editor of the International Journal of Psychology and Neuroscience (Europe), an Invited Guest Editor for the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience (JIN), and a recognized reviewer for MDPI Journals on Personalized Medicine, Clinical Medicine, Microbiology, Environmental Research, and Public Health (Basel, Switzerland).
