Research

We investigate the role of the neuromodulator serotonin, especially its influence on emotional behavior and psychiatric diseases, such as anxiety and depression. Our investigations range from single cells to the system level.

Methods

Molecular Biology, Optogenetics, Electrophyisology, Immunhistochemistry, Behavior
