For Research. For Berlin.

Electrical synapses and their functional significance in neural networks are currently poorly analyzed. A research group headed by Michael Brecht (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) wants to remedy this situation. The scientists want to explore, among other things, how powerful the electrical synaptic coupling is and how this affects the network level as well as the information processing and ultimately the behavior.
