Cellular Neurophysiology - J. Rettig

Our research is directed towards elucidating the molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic transmission in neurons, neuroendocrine cells and immune cells.

The ultimate goal is to understand how communication between these cells is mediated and modulated.

In order to achieve these goals we are using a combination of high-resolution electrophysiological and imaging methods on defined genetic model systems.

Extrapolation of that knowledge from individual synapses to networks of the brain and immune system will enable us to understand the function of these networks and identify potential strategies for treatment of disorders.
