Cortical circuits group
How does the brain work ?
We investigate processes in the brains of awake, behaving animals in order to better understand how the brain works in real time, and reveal the mechanisms underlying perception, learning and memory.

- In vivo multiphoton microscopy of structure and activity.
We have close collaborations with Marianne Fyhn at Department of Biosciences.
We are part of Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) - an interdisciplinary consortium uniting experimental neuroscience and computational modelling.
