Rüdiger Klein: Molecules - Signaling - Development
The department of Rüdiger Klein investigates the common principles and functions of cell-cell communication in the developing and mature nervous system.
Alexander Borst: Circuits - Computation - Models
The department of Alexander Borst investigates how the brain computes. Studying the fruit fly Drosophila, the researchers aim to understand neural information processing at the level of individual neurons and small neural circuits.
Tobias Bonhoeffer: Synapses - Circuits - Plasticity
The department of Tobias Bonhoeffer investigates the fundamental principles of synaptic plasticity at a number of different levels, ranging from molecular approaches to studies of the intact nervous system.
