Profile

My research interest is how sound characteristics extracted by lower auditory brainstem nuclei are integrated in the higher brain structure, especially the inferior colliculus. To answer this question, I have used anatomical techniques (histology and tract-tracing methods). Furthermore, I started multi-cell functional imaging experiments to elucidate the function of neural circuits identified morphologically.
