*Code 1829/2020/7*

The research group ‘Neural Circuit Computations’, led by Jan Gründemann, aims to understand how ever-changing environmental stimuli are represented and computed in the brain to elucidate key principals of multisensory integration upon memory formation. To address this question, we combine state-of-the-art circuit neuroscience tools like opto- and pharmacogenetics with single and two-photon imaging techniques to reveal computational frameworks of sensory integration in deep brain areas and their effects on behaviour and learning in health and disease (see also: https://www.dzne.de/en/research/research-areas/fundamental-research/rese...).
