My lab is interested in the cellular dynamics that support the development and plasticity of the nervous system. We study how neurons establish their complex distinctive dendrite morphologies. For this, in combination with classical genetics, we are pushing in vivo imaging of differentiating neurons to reveal the subcellular transient localization of active molecular cascades. We […]

We use optical microscopy techniques, such as two-photon calcium imaging, to understand how neural networks in the brain change over time, from single synapses to entire circuits, and how these changes relate to behavior. Our research focuses on the model organism Drosophila melanogaster where genetically identified, comprehensive neural networks underlying adaptive behaviors can be studied. We interpret […]

The Cognitive Neuroscience Section uses behavioral, pharmacological and neuromodulatory methods to elucidate pathomechanisms of neurological and neuropsychological deficits, with the aim to develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutic strategies/procedures. Using functional imaging (PET and MRI), electrophysiology (EEG, MEG), both systemic (neural networks) and molecular (neurotransmission) approaches utilizing mathematical models (such as dynamic causal modelling) are combined, […]
