Research Focus

Prof. Leibold's lab works on models and theoretical analyses of small neural circuits. Thereby, all levels of description are employed: from highly specified abstract frameworks up to large scale computer simulations of neuronal networks. The group's interests are focused on models of synaptic transmission and plasticity. The theoretical models are applied to neurobiological questions related to auditory processing and the formation of memory in the hippocampus. Therefore, the group has very close collaborations with experimentally working groups.

Primary Technique(s): large scale computer simulations of neuronal networks, neural models
