The group of Prof. Herz uses methods from nonlinear dynamics and probability theory to analyze and model electrophysiological data, which are provided by collaborators, and to compare them with theoretical predictions. Furthermore, new techniques are developed to integrate real-time data analysis methods into neurobiological experiments. Research areas include spatial navigation, synaptic transmission, optimality and adaptation of sensory systems, interaction of cell-intrinsic rhythms and large-scale oscillations as well as collective properties of neuronal networks.
Primary Technique(s): nonlinear dynamics, probability theory, theoretical biophysics
Model Organism(s): Computational and mathematical models of rodent entorhinal cortex and hippocampus
