Montreal - Martin Munz

Martin Munz

In 2007 I enrolled in the master program in Medical Neurosciences at the Charité Berlin. In my final thesis, in the lab of Prof. Michael Brecht at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin, I looked at whisking behavior of the Etruscan Shrew during pursuit.

Currently, I am doing a PhD in the lab of Dr. Edward Ruthazer. I study how nerve cells establish appropriate connections during the development of the brain. Specifically, this lab is interested how early visual input influences the formation of topographic connections in the midbrain optic tectum of the frog, Xenopus laevis. I am especially interested in factors underlying synapse formation structural plasticity.

Being convinced of the potential of the medical neurosciences program I want to motivate students to move to one of the scientifically and culturally most interesting cities. My goal is to establish collaboration between the Medical Neurosciences Program of the Charité and the Integrated Program in Neuroscience of the McGill University.
