Synapse, Glia and Networks

The special interest group "Synapse, Glia & Networks" deals with the mechanisms underlying the generation, transmission and integration of neuronal signals at the synaptic, cellular and network level in the normal and diseased nervous system. Thus, we focus on those neuronal processes that take place in the broad field between ion channel and cell physiology on the one hand, and systems neuroscience on the other hand. In view of the importance of neuro-glia-interactions for synaptic function and network activity, our group explicitly includes glial research.
