Research Summary

Our group studies the processing of visual information in the retina using electro- and multi-photon opto-physiological techniques. We focus on the question how dendrites process information . This is of particular interest in the retina, where the largest class of interneurons, the amacrine cells, typically lack axons and use their dendrites both for receiving input and making output synapses.
