Research Group Neuroplasticity
Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology
The work in our group is concerned with the molecular analysis of cellular plasticity in the central nervous system. Central topics are studies on the mechanisms, which are responsible for the activity-dependent re-modeling of the postsynaptic cyotskeletion, the postsynaptic density (PSD) and the morphogenesis of dendritic spines. Further work is devoted to the question how inflammatory signals are transduced in damaged axons in a model of diffuse axon injury and how this relates to restitution plasticity. Finally we are analyzing the physiological and pathophysiological role of a survival promoting peptide termed Y-P30 that we recently characterized.
