In the Bonhoeffer lab, Amgen scholars can get an insight on electrophysiology combined with molecular tools, genetic techniques and optical approaches like two-photon calcium-imaging and time-lapse microscopy. The research would be focused on the cellular and molecular basis of synaptic plasticity.
Primary Technique(s): In vitro & in vivo models, electrophysiology (extracellular, patch-clamp), structural and functional 2-photon imaging, 2-photon microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, intrinsic signaling imaging, optogenetic techniques, genetically encoded indicators, slices, organotypic slice cultures, behavioral methods
Model Organism(s): Mice, rats
