Christian Thome studied Biology and Philosophy at the Universities of Heidelberg and Glasgow. He specialized in the areas of
Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind and earned his PhD with his work on the prevalence, anatomy and physiology of
dendritic axon origins in hippocampal neurons. Building upon this work, he studied the development, plasticity and functional properties
of non-canonical axon morphologies at the Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology at Heidelberg University (Germany) and at the Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology in Linz University (Austria).
