After having studied neuronal developmental dynamics in Drosophila throughout synaptogenesis, I am now mostly interested in the dynamics of connective and synaptic maintenance on a nanoscale and how these contribute to memory formation and learning on a larger scale. Integrating the knowledge from basic neurobiological research to broader fMRI based studies, I am seeking to understand the mechanisms that allow plasticity in learning and psychological development over our lifespan on a deeper level.
