Anneke joined our group in 2006 and developed a new technique for mapping receptive fields from local field potentials. She finished her masters thesis in 2007 and then moved to the University of Glasgow where she joined an EU-program to learn patch-clamp recordings. She is now a PhD student at the University of Konstanz and works in the antennal lobe of honeybees.
