Short description

Our main focus is the function of synapses in the brain, how they change their signaling properties in association with learning and forgetting.

We use electrophysiological methods to examine different aspects of electrical signaling in the brain. We are interested in how synapses change their signaling during development, during learning and in association with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.

A special interest in our group is how, so called, silent synapses are involved in development, learning and brain disorders. Another special interest is how healthy and diseased cerebrospinal fluid affects signaling in the brain.
