SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
I wish to apply my fascination for molecular and cellular mechanisms towards contributing to the investigation of neuronal signal processing, synchrony and plasticity. I would like to link neuroelectric and neurochemical processes to perceptive and cognitive capabilities, thus working towards the understanding of learning and memory.
