This is my laboratory at the Balaton Limnological Research Institute in Tihany. We have intracellular current- and voltage-clamp amplifiers for measuring membrane potential and ionic currents and extracellular amplifiers to record nerve activity. The system is equipped with two computers, one of them performs data acquisition, generates input waveforms while the other is running the dynamic clamp.
Together with my colleagues we have been studying long-term dynamical behavior, pattern generation and plasticity of the neural networks of the mollusc Lymnaea stagnalis. We also investigate the biohphysical properties of identified neurons, synapses and their modulation by a range of signal molecules such as peptides and citokines.
