Deciphering Neuronal Mechanisms in Health and Disease
Brains are capable of forming polysensory percepts of our environment, and using this information to make decisions and execute complex behaviors. These processes are strongly influenced by past experience and innate behavioral programs, and are modulated by arousal or motivational state. The IEECR Bonn scientists have a passion for understanding these processes at the level of single cells and more complex circuits in model organisms and human subjects. The groups of the institute are using scale bridging approaches to relate the functional properties of cells, defined neuronal networks and modulatory systems to behavior. Leveraging these innovative technologies for a better understanding and treatment of brain disorders, in particular epilepsy, is one of the major directions within the IEECR.
