Doing research

Learn more about my research at my laboratory's new web page!

My research investigates the development and plasticity of excitable membranes - processes essential for the healthy functioning of numerous organ systems including the nervous system. I am particularly interested in mechanisms of short-term plasticity, changes that occur within minutes.

We investigate these processes in a unique and powerful model system, the electric fish. These fish are specialists in the rapid modulation of excitable membranes and the developmental transformation of excitable cells to new phenotypes.

More information is available for the public and for specialists.
