Cellular and Systems Neurobiology

Research groups in the Cellular and Systems Neurobiology Department study the integrative processes of the nervous system combining molecular, electrophysiological, optogenetics, brain imaging and behavioral tools in a variety of animal models (Drosophila, mouse, rats) and human studies. Specific topics cover investigations on synaptic transmission and synaptopathies, functional organization of brain networks and its plasticity, sensory transduction and perception, sensory-motor integration, memory formation and the neurobiological underpinnings and organizational principles of behavior.
