Antal Berenyi’s seminar

Let me invite you to the talk of Antal Berényi at KOKI lecture room at 11 am on 9 March.

Title and abstract:

Coupling single neuronal activity to complex brain functions: large-scale, high-resolution approaches to dissect and to modify neuronal network activities.

In order to understand how behavioral and network level functions emerge from the cooperation of neuronal populations, a representative fraction of neurons must be simultaneously monitored at the single-cell level. We developed large-scale electrophysiological recording methods with precise manipulation approaches, which can give birth to on demand, closed-loop therapeutic interventions for many drug resistant neuropsychiatric disorders.
I will introduce our recent results we gained to understand the development of hypersynchronous events in the hippocampus. Our translational efforts to employ closed-loop transcranial electrical stimulation on human patients to establish an acute intervention approach to promptly disrupt pathologic network oscillations will be also highlighted in my talk.
