About Us

The Molecular, Cellular and Network Excitability unit (principal investigators: Prof. Erik De Schutter and Prof. Giugliano Michele ) is a research group affiliated with the University of Antwerp - UA (Belgium).

We study cortical and cerebellar function using a combination of technological, experimental and theoretical approaches. These range from substrate arrays of microelectrodes to patch-clamp, from in vitro cellular electrophysiology to in vivo recordings, from the micro- and nanotechnologies for neural engineering applications to the computer simulation of realistic models of neurons and neuronal networks. We also develop neural simulation software. The images on our pages show simulated calcium images of a modeled cerebellar Purkinje cell.
