My group has an overarching interest in neuronal integration and the function of neuronal networks in the intact brain. We also have a strong track record investigating basic mechanisms of epilepsy in animal models and tissue obtained from epilepsy surgery. To achieve insights into the network motifs govering normal and aberrant behavior, we are employing in-vivo electrophysiology and imaging together with opto- and chemogenetic approaches in awake rodents.
