Research Area

I perform two-photon Ca2+ imaging experiments in hippocampal neurons of mice in vivo. I am quantifying Ca2+ signals in both presynaptic terminals and postsynaptic target cells, using the genetically encoded Ca2+ indicator GCaMP6. The goal is to characterize the activity of synapses in vivo in anesthetized and in awake mice and to quantify synaptic efficacy under in vivo conditions. The results may shed light on the nature of coding in different subfields of the hippocampus.
