Research

Sensory input together with perception mechanisms govern our navigation through the world. The Brauchi laboratory at Universidad Austral de Chile is devoted to study the activation and modulation of the cellular components that participate in the detection of external stimuli. In particular, we are focused on the cellular physiology of peripheral thermal responses, the evolution of TRP ion channels proteins, and the biophysical properties of ion channels. We are also interested on the development of novel experimental approaches including optical methods and platforms for image analysis.
