Zenke Lab Coat of Arms


Zenke Lab

When Friedemann started his lab, he wanted to have a coat of arms that represents his research interests. So I asked him for his favorite experiment and equation in Neuroscience. His favorite experiments were from Hodgkin and Huxley who probed the inner workings of a giant squid axon. But I took some artistic license because an Octopus makes a better companion for this shield. Spikes, a synapse, and networks adorn the shield. The equation is a leaky integrate-and-fire neuron model. Visit the Zenke lab here.
