Neurobiology

Our group is working on retinal signal processing. We aim to understand the functional role of ion channels, ion transporters and gap junctions in the retina. Also, we work on the functional role of individual retinal cell types.

Methodology

  • Extracellular or intracellular recordings of light responses from retinal neurons,
  • morphological analysis of retinal circuits using confocal microscopy

Scientific Cooperations

  • Cooperation 1
    Prof. Klaus Willecke, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany
  • Cooperation 2
    Prof. Christian Huebner, University of Jena, Jena, Germany
  • Cooperation 3
    Prof. Thomas Euler, CIN, Tuebingen, Germany
  • Cooperation 4
    Dr. Sheriar Hormuzdi, University of Dundee, Dundee, UK

Current Research Projects

  • Project 1
    Synaptic interactions in the inner plexiform layer of the retina: the role of wide-field amacrine cells
  • Project 2
    Physiology of horizontal cells
  • Project 3
    Expression pattern and functional role of connexins in the mouse retina
