Research summary

Astrocytes, the most abundant type of glia cell in the brain, are much more than brain’glue’: Apart from giving structural and metabolic support to neurones, they actively participate in information processing on multiple levels.

We are particularly interested in the special relationship between astrocytes and noradrenergic neurones which constitute a major modulatory system that regulates fundamental brain states and vital functions, such as wakefuleness, attention to important stimuli, motivation, cardiovascular and respiratory activity.

The major questions our lab is currently focussing on are:

  • How does astroglial activity link to release of noradrenaline, and vice versa?
  • Which intracellular second messenger pathways ...
