Inhibitory neurons: shaping the cortical code

The human brain processes and stores information with remarkable efficiency, controlled by a complex system of neurons, among which inhibitory neurons play a crucial role.

These neurons regulate the activity of excitatory neurons and ensure a balanced interaction in the cortical network, which is central to the understanding of thoughts, memories and perceptions.

The SFB Transregio 384 focuses on the study of inhibitory neurons to understand their role in information processing and coding in the brain. Using state-of-the-art techniques, we aim to gain new insights into the cortical code, which could be fundamental for the development of innovative treatment strategies for neurological and mental disorders.
