Four patch clamp setups with amplifiers (Axon Multiclamp, HEKA EPC-800), manipulators (Luigs&Neumann, Kleindiek, Sensapex) and upright microscopes (Nikon FN-1).
Imaging systems: CrestOptics V3 spinning disk confocal, Nikon C1 confocal and two high-speed (up to 40 kHz) Red Shirt Imaging Da Vinci 1K camera systems. These are equipped with various laser sources (89North LDI, Lumencor Celesta, ChangChun).
The laboratory started its operation in July 1st 2009 after a new young investigator position was created by the institute with the support of the Network of the European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI-Network). Initial funding was provided by the Wellcome Trust and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (“Lendület” initiative). Our early projects focused on the cellular interface between the DG and CA3 network. The current work of the laboratory are funded by the European Research Council (ERC-CoG nanoAXON). Our group uses two rooms as laboratories (38 m2) and one office (19 m2) and some of our experimental equipment are located in the imaging facility of the institute (see NMC at IEM).
