Department of Neurobiology

Welcome to the Department of Neurobiology at IBBS!

The Department of Neurobiology at the IBBS investigates the neural basis of learning and memory and decision making in rodent models


In our department we investigate the neural underpinnings of learning and memory and decision-making processes in rodent models. Here, we aim to understand the role of specific brain areas and neurotransmitter systems as well as the architecture and function of neural circuits and synaptic plasticity mechanisms. Towards this end, we use a wide range of techniques including behavioral pharmacology and behavioral analyses, electrophysiology, viral gene transfer, optogenetics, imaging techniques and anatomical approaches.

If you are interested in a Bachelors or Masters thesis, please contact us!

Postdocs
We are looking for a highly motivated candidates with expertise ex vivo or in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, behavior and/or imaging techniques.

Masters and Bachelors Students
Opportunities for Masters and Bachelors projects for students from Tuebingen and Stuttgart Universities are available upon request.


Internships
Placements for students in Technical Biology, Biology, Medical Technologies, Neuroscience or related fields are available upon request
