The zebrafish is an important model organism for brain research. They are well-suited for a variety of experiments, including behavioral studies and brain imaging, and, at the same time, share much genetic information with humans!
As a physicist in the biological territory, I am interested in the quantification of these systems, including the complex system of the brain.
I want to present oscillating visual stimuli to zebrafish and investigate whether this approach is an efficient method to extract usable information about their brain activity. Furthermore, I aim to test the neurons with different stimulus frequencies to see whether the fish reacts to a very specific one, like a bridge that starts to wobble when you hop on it with the right frequency.
Outside the dark labs, I love exploring the world of cinema, listening to new music, and hanging out with my friends.
