We have some exciting news on basal forebrain cholinergic neurons – there are two types of them! See our paper here. We also came out with a new method to localize mouse brain implants in vivo with a precision equivalent of histology, using CT-MRI fusion techniques borrowed from human surgery and radiotherapy. You can find…

Sanja Mikulovic’s talk and visit

Sanja Mikulovic from the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases at Bonn gave a seminar talk at 29 October in the KOKI entitled On motion and emotion – neuronal circuits underlying locomotion and aversive behavior in the hippocampus/medial septum system. Sanja is finalizing her post-doc work in the Remy lab and starting her independent group at the Leibniz…

Visit and talk of David Dupret

David Dupret from University of Oxford gave a seminar talk at 3 May 9:30 am in KOKI Lecture Room, entitled ‘Circuit dynamics of a memory representation within the hippocampus, and beyond‘. Summary: Hippocampal neuronal activity, described in terms of spatio-temporally organised spike discharge and rhythmic fluctuations of the local field potentials, supports information processing with…

ION-KOKI Joint Symposium

Institute of Experimental Medicine hosted the members of Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences in the framework of ION-KOKI Joint Symposium, held on 9-10 April 2019. Our group members have a great professional relationship with Yang Yang, assistant professor in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University College of Pharmacy. We were happy…
