Academic interests

  • Neurobiology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Cortical circuitry
  • Visual information processing

The focus of my work is on area- and cell-specific contributions to visual information processing. To study this we use tetrodes and silicone probes for electrophysiological recordings of single units and neuronal networks in rodents. Genetic perturbations and immunohistochemistry is also used to help reveal function and connectivity of the networks. The data acquired in this project will be used test computational models as part of the COBRA project which aim to integrate technological, experimental and theoretical efforts to better comprehend neuronal information processing. 



Part of my employment will be used organizing the Norwegian Biology Olympiad for pre-university students in Norway. The four best biology students will be competing in the International Biology Olympiad against students from all over the world.
