Immunofluorescent labeling of parvalbumin-expressing interneurons in the hippocampus.
Welcome to the pages of the iNeuron Research Group
Our group's main aim is to understand how information is processed and stored in the brain and
focus on the role of 'iNeurons' in cortical circuits.
'iNeurons' are GABAergic inhibitory interneurons and although very low in number (~10% of cortical neurons) they are highly diverse and can be subdivided into several distinct types. The various types produce inhibition at different times and places in the network and thereby regulate when and where information can flow in neuronal networks.
We use a combination of neuroanatomical, electrophysiological and computational tools to address these research questions.
