Research focus

Research Group Systems Neurobiology

We study how neural circuits generate eye movement behavior. One of our aims is to understand how local networks produce function in the (pre-)motor systems in the hindbrain and in the visual system. In the oculomotor system, the neural integrator for horizontal eye movements
forms a short-lived memory of eye positions by maintaining eye-position related neural activity in the absence of input. We investigate the architecture and mechanisms of this persistently active circuit and use acombination of (opto-)genetic methods and two-photon microscopy as well  as other physiological approaches and computation to study the circuitsin live, behaving zebrafish.
