Homeostatic Plasticity

Homeostatic Plasticity Homeostatic synaptic plasticity Neurons adapt their structural and functional properties in response to changes in network activity. However, despite these changes stability of neuronal networks must be assured.…

Inflammation and Synaptic Plasticity

Inflammation and Synaptic Plasticity Neuroinflammation A major hallmark of brain diseases is neuroinflammation. We study how immune mediators affect synaptic plasticity. Particularly, our work focuses on better understanding how these…

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation TMS In 1985, Anthony Barker and colleagues developed the first TMS device. Based on the physical principle of electromagnetic induction, TMS uses short (~500µs) and strong (>1Tesla)…
