Applying a wide range of techniques, we investigate neurobiological mechanisms ranging from synaptic plasticity to complex behavior

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.
