Fritjof Helmchen

Professor, Departement of Neurophysiology
Director, Laboratory of Neural Circuit Dynamics

Helmchen is characterizing the properties of individual neurons in vivo and investigate how synaptic inputs are integrated in their dendrites to eventually cause action potentials that are transmitted to target neurons. Using in vivo electrophysiology and 2-photon imaging we perform both intracellular recordings from individual neurons as well as optical measurements of population activity. Development of 2-photon microscopy techniques for high-resolution imaging in living and behaving rodents.
