Starting to Fire Spikes in Bursts

Since you found your way to this blog, you probably know, who I am and what I do. If this is not the case, just feel free to roam my website. It gives you a pretty complete overview over my professional life.

I wrote my first blog entries in 2011. I used a weird pseudonym to write about topics I encountered at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (sfn). It was quite some work. Probably in part due to the fact that I am not a native English speaker. Also, hardly anybody read it. So I stopped blogging for then. However, recently – well, since I started participating on Twitter, actually – I was confronted the overall idea, that scientists should be blogging. There are a hundred good reasons to do so.

There are in fact, many topics I would like to express my opinions about or simply inform people. I will get started by revisiting my old blog posts and write about neuroscience topics. I also want to write about my PhD topic, which actually still fascinates me. From there, we will see how things go.

My goal is to make my posts informative and entertaining.

I really hope, you will enjoy my site! 🙂
