Elektrophysiology (in vivo):

  • Neuronal single cell and local field potential recordings in cerebral cortex
    • with multi-electrode arrays and shaft electrodes
    • in the anesthetized animal (Isofluran, Ketamin-Xylacin)
    • in awake behaving animal
  •  Recording of auditory brainstem responses (ABR)

Behavioral Methods:

  • Shuttle-box training
    • detection learning
    • discrimination learning
    • contingency reversal
  • Acoustic startle response (ASR)
    • Hearing threshold estimation 
    • Tinnitus screening


Computational Methods:

  • Analysis of brain dynamics
  • Simulation of artificial neural networks
  • GPU-Computing
