Our central goal is comprehensive understanding of organization and operation of rapid signal transduction and information processing at the plasma membrane of excitable cells under normal and pathophysiological conditions.
Using innovative microsystems we work to enhance the resolution and throughput of electrical recording from biomembranes.
How is information processed and encoded in neuronal networks to realize learning, memory and behaviour? We aim to uncover the mechanisms underlying information processing by applying electrophysiological, imaging, molecular and computational approaches.
We study the mechanisms governing blood flow and filtration rate in the kidney, ranging from local mediators and signaling pathways to the integrated function of pressure-dependent autoregulation.
