Michiel Remme

Michiel Remme simulates the transfer of signals between nerve cells. The Dutch neurobiologist is postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Theoretical Biology, Humboldt – Universität zu Berlin. He has supported junior professor Susanne Schreiber from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Her research group at the Institute of Theoretical Biology simulates nerve cells on the computer. Michiel Remme focussed on the dendrites - small, branch-like extensions of neurons that transmit electrical signals to the cell body. Using a computer model of a pyramidal cell, he investigated how the spatial arrangement of the dendrites affects the transmission of signals. The postdoctoral researcher moved from New York University to Berlin.
