Research interests

We study sensory processing at the level of single cells and neuronal populations. Rodents are flexible animal models that allow the investigation of neural circuits underlying sensory processing and behaviour. Our research at the Neural Coding Group focuses on the rat whisker-barrel pathway as a model system with well-characterised circuitary and high functional efficiency. We use electrophysiological and optical techniques to observe neuronal activity in anaesthetised as well as awake behaving animals, and apply mathematical methods to quantify the way by which single neurons or neuronal ensembles code for sensory stimuli or for the animal's behaviour.
