Talk title:
Inhibition increase drives developmental decorrelation of neural activity

My research focuses on the early development of the mammal brain, with particular emphasis on its relevance for neurodevelopmental disorders. I recently finished my PhD at the UKE in Hamburg, in the lab of Ileana Hanganu-Opatz, where I am now working as a postdoc. Currently, I am working on elucidating the (pato)physiological development of excitation/inhibition balance in the mouse and human prefrontal cortex, and how it impacts the spatio-temporal properties of brain activity.
