From the nerve cell to the network

The ANewSpike project deals with the interaction of the nerve cells of our brain: the cells “communicate” by means of electrical impulses, so-called action potentials. The group, led by Susanne Schreiber, Professor of Theoretical Neurophysiology, is investigating a new type of action potential that has been largely overlooked in research so far. The team is analyzing the nerve cells using mathematical models and computer simulations. The building of a link from the nerve cell to the network should reveal whether this unknown type is an integral part of the dynamics of a healthy or diseased brain. ANewSpike will investigate basic neuronal mechanisms responsible for epilepsy, for example. (Photo, Matthias Heyde)
