 AG Functional anatomy and plasticity of auditory cortex

 Morphology of single neurons

(Anna Laszcz)

In this project we investigate the morphology of physiologically characterized auditory cortical neurons by means of intracellular and juxtacellular staining methods. The detailed analysis of the dendritic and axonal branching pattern of the recorded neurons gives us information about the correlation of functional (e.g., frequency-tuning, lateralization) and anatomical properties.

Figure:
Scholl analysis on morphology of a layer III pyramidal neuron of the left auditory cortex. The neuron was narrowly tuned to 1.5 kHz and juxtacellularly stained with biocytin.
