We a very proud of our college Sebastian Bitzenhofer who got awarded with the PhD price from the Freundes- und Förderkreis des UKE e.V.. Congratulations Sebastian! [link]
Optogenetic approaches offer huge advantages in spatial, temporal and cell-type specific control of neuronal activity
Our new review about the role of prenatal immune and endocrine modulators for brain development is out
Fetal brain development is pivotally dependent on environmental triggers in utero.
Coordinated electrical activity in the olfactory bulb gates the oscillatory entrainment of entorhinal networks in neonatal mice
We show that reciprocal connectivity between OB and LEC is present at neonatal age and a continuous slow respiration-related rhythm and discontinuous theta bursts characterize the activity in the neonatal OB.
Glutamatergic drive along the septo-temporal axis of hippocampus boosts prelimbic oscillations in the neonatal mouse
We compare the dorsal and ventral/medial portions of the developing hippocampus (mice of 8-10 days of age) and show that:
Join the FENS Satellite Symposium, 6th of July in Berlin
Modulation of firing rates and timing of firing are key mechanisms of multisensory processing in directly connected primary sensory cortices.
Optogenetic manipulations increased the understanding of neuronal network activity in the adult brain […]
