Dr. Achim Klug

Principal Investigator

Achim has more than 20 years of experience in the auditory brain stem and sound localization circuit. He has used a number of electrophysiological techniques such as in-vivo recordings, patch clamp recordings, manipulations of neural circuits with pharmacology and optogenetics and combines these with behavior and histological analysis.
