Our research investigates the foundations of the patterns of activity in neuronal networks, their role in diseases of the nervous system as well as in their treatment. A range of techniques is used to explore these patterns, primarily new microelectrode arrays and optical methods to monitor the activity of nerve cells at high spatial and temporal resolution.

In the course of this, we further develop neurotechnological tools to interact with neuronal networks and modulate their activity. We compare the properties of these networks with those of computational model networks to help interpret our observations. Our research contributes to the development of new microsystems tools for neurotechnological, biomedical, clinical, and pharmaceutical research.
