Research Area

I recently started my PhD in the Jonas group. I will examine the mechanisms of synaptic transmission in hippocampal mossy fiber synapses, using patch-clamp recording in organotypic slice cultures and acute slices, and structural analysis by electron microscopy. One of the main goals is to characterize the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and the underlying structural changes. The long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in vitro and in vivo.
