Neuroscience - Research Groups

Research Group of Matthias Kaschube

Assembly, function, and maintenance of brain circuits

Research in my group focuses on the following three questions:

  1. Brain circuits are formed combining genetic and sensory information. This process involves complex network interactions on various levels. What is the interplay of the different factors leading to the development of cortical circuits?
  2. Cortical circuits produce rich patterns of electrical activity, which are thought to underlay perception, behavior and reasoning. What are the relevant features of these patterns supporting such cognitive phenomena? What circuit components do they depend on?
  3. Brains are remarkably robust. The functionality of cortical circuits is maintained despite significant turnover on cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. How is this robustness achieved?
