We aim to establish causal links between learning deficits or development delay and impaired brain circuit adaptation during behavior. Further, we aim to identify genetic factors contributing to mild learning impairment. (Picutres: Helmchen lab (left) and Ruff lab (right)).
We aim to uncover molecular mechanisms underlying brain circuit development. Further, we want to identify mutations affecting circuit formation and multi-sensory processing. (Picture: Alexandre Dumoulin, Stoeckli Lab, UZH)
We aim to translate insights from basic research to the clinic and to develop new diagnostic tools as well as innovative treatment strategies. (Picture: Children's Hospital Zurich)
We provide expertise and service for UZH researchers interested in using our newly developed light-sheet microscope, which allows high-resolution 3D imaging of whole brains. (Pictures: mesospim.org)
We improve and extend the existing database containing data about all pre-school children that have been assessed for developmental delay in the Canton of Zurich. With this, we provide a tool for identifying specific subtypes of development and learning deficits, designing research projects and recruiting study participants.

We aim to provide tools and expertise with iPSC-based models for neuroscience, with a specific emphasis on brain circuit development. We will establish 2D and 3D differentiation protocols and generate a tool box of iPSC lines with fluorescently tagged proteins relevant for neuroscience, with the aim of supporting groups applying these methods and establishing new collaborations.

We aim to develop innovative algorithms for analysis of data from microscopy, functional imaging or behavior videos. (Picture: Sepp Kollmorgen, Mante lab, UZH)
We will keep you informed about new insights from our research
