Welcome to the webpage of the iNeuronLab
Our primary goal is to understand how information is processed and stored in the brain and
focus on the role of inhibition and iNeurons in cortical, hippocampal circuits.
iNeurons are GABAergic inhibitory interneurons. Although very low in number (~10 - 20% of cortical populations), they are highly diverse and can be subdivided into several distinct types. The various types produce inhibition at different times and different locations in the network and thereby regulate when and where information can flow in neuronal circuits.
We use a combination of neuroanatomical, electrophysiological and computational tools to address these research questions.
