This lab course is intended for Master's students ("Hauptstudium") in the Natural Sciences with a special interest in the structure and function of the Mammalian Brain. On the basis of selected experiments, the course provides a practical introduction (2.5 weeks full time in the semester break) to modern electrophysiological techniques (intra-cellular recording, whole cell patch-clamping, extra-cellular recording with multi-electrode-arrays), immunostaining of brain slices, synaptic plasticity and advanced data analysis methods. Experiments are performed in in vitro brain slice preparations of the rat brain: neo-cortex, hippocampus.

We strongly recommend prior participation in the Compact Course on Measuring techniques in Neurobiology during the winter semester! Participants of this course will be granted prefered admission to the slice course.
