The nervous system
Nerve cells are the functional and structural elements of the brain. They exist in hundreds of morphological variations. Information is integrated and processed in the elaborate dendritic tree of the cell. If one is to understand the nervous system, one must discover how individual cells of the nervous system and within those cells, how individual signalling molecules work. We study the signaling pathways of G-protein coupled receptors, the role of cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels, signal transduction in sensory cells as well as signal processing in a small neuronal network, the retina.
