Christian Hölscher is specialized in neuroscience. His main research techniques include electrophysiological and behavioral studies, recording from single cells in vivo and recording field potentials in brain regions in behaving animals. The encoding, processing, and storage of information by the CNS is one of his points of interest. Since October 2006, he is a Senior Lectureship (Associate Professor) at the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Ulster, Northern Ireland. In June 2004, he was Lectureship (Assistant Professor) at the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Ulster, Northern Ireland. From 2001 to 2004, he was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Tübingen. In 1999-2000, he had MRC Research Fellowship in neuroscience, Department of Experimental Psychololgy, University of Oxford. In 1997–1999, he was temporary Lectureship in physiology, Department of Physiology, University College, Dublin, Ireland. In 1995–1997, he had European Human Capital and Mobility fellowship, Department of Pharmacololgy and Therapeutics, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. Hölscher received the Habilitation at the Faculty of Biology (Elected Member of the Faculty, which permits to independently work and teach) in 2002; Ph.D. degree in neuroscience at Biology Department, the Open University, UK, in 1991–1994; M.S. degree in neurobiology from Deptartment of Neuropharmacology, University of Tübingen, Germany, in 1990-1991. From 1984 to 1989, Hölscher studied biology and biochemistry from University of Kiel, Germany; in 1983 the Abitur (leaving certificate) in Wilhelmshaven; and in 1979-1980, Exchange Student of High School diploma in Long Beach, Mississippi, USA.
