Professor Konnerth’s (b. 1953) research explores the basic processes underlying brain function. By means of electrophysiology, imaging and cell biological approaches, he focuses on synaptic interactions in neuronal circuits in order to achieve a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying learning and memory. A further goal is the elucidation of the neuronal defects associated with Alzheimer’s disease.He received Grete Lundbeck European Brain Research Prize in 2015.
