My research interests include in vitro electrophysiology, exploring network-level phenomena in neocortical brain slices and dissociated cell cultures. In particular, I explore the combination of non-conventional stimulating/recording tools and nanomaterials (e.g. multi-electrode substrate arrays - MEAs) with traditional patch-clamp recording techniques. These activities are driven and supported by computer-simulations and theoretical analysis tools, involving models of single-cells and networks of spiking neurons. I received an international habilitation to perform in vitro experiments on cellular tissue explanted from small rodents (FELASA-Cat. B), and since 2005 to independently direct and plan these kind of experiments (FELASA-Cat. C).
