Dr. Janelle Pakan

Janelle Pakan is head of the Neural Circuits & Network Dynamics research group funded by the Center for Behavioural Brain Sciences at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. Her research is focused on functional neural circuits that underly the transformation of sensory information to behavioural output in both health and disease states. She utilizes advanced two-photon imaging in behaving mice in combination with virtual environments and functional neuroanatomical techniques to investigate cell-type specific adaptive plasticity in sensory systems due to behavioural modification. Through ongoing collaborations with both local and international partners, her research also directly relates behavioural readouts with neuronal activity across multiple scales in both humans and animal models – an important aspect of translational circuit imaging in psychiatric conditions.
