Plasticity of Auditory Circuits

Our lab is interested in the mechanisms underlying the plasticity of  auditory circuits that occurs during development and under pathological conditions such as hearing loss and tinnitus.

Trainees in Dr. Kandler’s laboratory can engage in research projects investigating mechanisms of synaptic and neuronal plasticity in the auditory system. We use a variety of electrophysiological, live-imaging, anatomical, and behavioral methods, which we applied to normal and genetically modified mice.

Our lab has close collaborations with other auditory and neuroscience laboratories, which provides a rich interdisciplinary training environment though ongoing collaborative research projects and joint lab-meetings.
