Homepage for Attila Szücs
Welcome to my homepage!                                Updated: December 5, 2004

This site is located in the Balaton Limnological Research Institute, Tihany, Hungary. I am working at the Department of Zoology as electrophysiologist. I am interested in network dynamics and plasticity in the molluscan nervous system. Below you can find information on the research projects I have been working and related publications.

I also work in the
Instute for Nonlinear Science at the University of California, San Diego. As an interdisciplinary team of neurobiologists, physicists and computer scientists we investigate the dynamical organization and plastic reconfiguration of several neural systems. One of our prime experimental models is the stomatogastric nervous system of lobsters. This system gives us a great opportunity to study pattern generation, neuromodulation and information transfer between bursting neurons. Beside, we can create hybrid circuits of biological and electronic neurons.

I have been developing a software for spike train analysis for some years. You can have a look at this program and test it with your own spike time data if interested. Check out the Software section and download the demo program if interested.

You can also find some nice photos I took in national parks of the western U.S. and in the European Alps. All these pictures were taken with a Minolta X-700 camera,don't expect any fancy 6+ Megapixel digital camera! Nevertheless, the quality is pretty good, thanks to the resolution of the slidefilm and the slide scanner I used. Check out the pictures, you will like them.
