  • The IBRO/PERC sponsored Young Investigator Training Programme will not go ahead in July as the FENS meeting is now being held virtually. We would like to thank all applicants who had contacted us in order to visit our lab prior to the meeting in Glasgow. We do hope that this programme could run next year.


  • Together with my colleagues David Hughes (University of Glasgow) and Shuzo Sakata (University of Strathclyde) I have organised an Introductory Course on Optogenetics  that was supposed to be held prior to the FENS Meeting in Glasgow on the 10th July 2020. Please note that this event will also not go ahead as planned. It will soon be decided whether it will be also be held virtually or whether it will be postponed.


  • A new preprint now online: 'A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types', released at arXiv, 6th Sept 2019.


Our main research interest lies in understanding the role of various types of neurons in cortical and subcortical meso- and microcircuits.

Using state-of-art techniques such as Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2)-assisted circuit mapping, electrophysiological methods, immunohistochemistry and anatomical reconstructions we aim to investigate the balance between excitation and inhibition, and the cause and mechanisms of neuronal hyperexcitability in disease.
