Bernardo Rudy, Ph.D., M.D.

The Rudy lab studies K+ channels, which regulate the excitability level of neurons and play a major role in determining their firing patterns, and thus significantly contribute to neuronal integration. A special focus of their research are channels expressed in thalamic relay neurons, the cells that process all sensory information before transmitting it to the cortex, as well as in the cortical neurons that receive and process this information.
