I am an experimental neurobiologist interested in the electrophysiological properties of irregularly-spiking (IS) cortical interneurons. I focus on understanding how spike time irregularity is achieved and how it could be interpreted by the neuronal network. I use whole-cell recordings (current and voltage clamp), conductance injection (dynamic clamp) and morphological reconstruction.
