Congratulations to Sebastian Bitzenhofer!
Sebastian received the Du Bois-Reymond Prize of the German Physiological Society.
Check out Mattia’s newest paper on eLifeAbstract Throughout development, the brain transits from early highly synchronous activity patterns to a mature state with sparse and decorrelated neural activity, yet the mechanisms underlying this process are poorly understood. The developmental transition has important functional consequences, as the latter state is thought to allow for more efficient storage, retrieval and processing of information. [...]
Congratulation to Steven to the new publication in Nature Communications!
Steven and his colleagues investigated the molecular and cellular characteristics of maternal cells (short: MMc) that are transferred to the fetus during pregnancy. We showed that MMc seed the developing brain and influence the oscillatory entrainment of prefrontal-hippocampal circuits by altering microglia-induced synapse elimination. By this pathway, maternal cells contribute to the development of behavioral […]
April 2022: Fiona Parbst joins the lab.
She’s looking forward to work in Sebastians Team „Cognitive Olfaction“ to investigate how the propagation of odor-evoked activity is altered in a mouse model for mental disorders. Welcome Fiona!
