Research Interests

Our main research interest lies in understanding the role of various types of neurons in cortical and subcortical microcircuits.

Using state-of-art techniques such as Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2)-assisted circuit mapping, electrophysiological methods and anatomical reconstructions we aim to investigate

- the balance between excitation and inhibition, particularly in dendrites

- the cause and mechanisms of neuronal hyperexcitability in disease
