In the laboratory electrical activity (ion currents, gating currents, and action potentials) are measured. Experimental objects include immortalized cell lines, primary cell cultures, and acute tissue slices.
- Selected projects:
- regulation of voltage-dependent ion channels by pharmacological substances and putative interacting proteins
- structure-function relationship of voltage-dependent ion channels
- regulation of neuronal excitability by endo- and exogenous factors
