Student project topics

We are always looking for motivated students who want to do a research module or their Bachelor's or Master's thesis in our group.

Experimental projects (supervised by Jutta Kretzberg supported by Sonja Meiser, Steffen Scherer):

  • Electrophysiological intracellular recordings in the medicinal leech
  • Voltage-sensitive dye recordings (only for M.Sc. thesis)
  • Dye-injection for morphological analysis

Modelling (supervised by Jutta Kretzberg and / or Go Ashida, supported by Kevin Sandbote, Fiona Teske):

  • Single-cell modelling
  • Modelling of biological neuronal networks

Data analysis (supervised by Jutta Kretzberg and / or Go Ashida, supported by Kevin Sandbote, Fiona Teske):

  • Analysis of spike data
  • Change-point detection in electrophysiological recordings
  • Optimization of biophysical neuron models
