Dr. Christian Tetzlaff (male) has studied Physics at the University of Göttingen. He received a well-known graduation scholarship of the Max-Planck Society and obtained his PhD in 2013 in Göttingen analysing in a theoretical study the interaction of synaptic plasticity and scaling and its functional role for memory formation. Since 2015 he is Bernstein Fellow (independent research position) at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen and the University of Göttingen. His research focuses on understanding the interplay between several plasticity mechanisms on different time scales and their relation to properties of neural systems as learning, memory, and computation. He is author and co-author of several journal articles in the field of computational neuroscience and reviewer and associated editor of several international journals.
