Biophysics of AMPA-type Glutamate Receptors Group

We think, learn, memorise and forget because our neurons communicate in a certain way. Many proteins mediate this communication and AMPA-type glutamate receptors are among the most important ones. Their activity is one of the first signs to a neuron that another, neighbouring neuron is trying to communicate.

To understand what happens in our neurons when we learn, form memories and forget, we need to know how AMPA receptors work and how their activity is regulated. 

Our group uses a range of biophysical and molecular biology techniques to study function and regulation of AMPA receptors.
