Duda Kvitsiani and Balazs Hangya got the DARE grant! The project is entitled: “Electrophysiological recordings and manipulation of single neurons in behaving animals”. Electrophysiological methods have the necessary temporal resolution to capture the microsecond timescale of neuronal firing; however, spatial information about the exact location of the recorded cells has been proven hard to extract…
It was great hosting Florin Albeanu from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in our lab! Florin gave a seminar titled “Feedforward and feedback neuronal mechanisms in olfaction”.
Balazs received the ERC Starting Grant! News in Hungarian here and here and here.
Adam Kampff (UCL), Goncalo Lopes (UCL) and Tim Schroeder (Donders Centre for Neuroscience, Nijmegen) dropped by and showed their cool new recordings with CMOS probe prototypes! Picture: data blitz at Éleszto ruin pub
The papers in Neuron and Neural Computation by Josh Sanders, Balazs Hangya and Adam Kepecs were featured in the Hungarian news: http://mta.hu/tudomany_hirei/agyunkban-elo-matematikus-felel-a-bizonyossag-erzeseert-106625 http://www.innoteka.hu/cikk/a_bennunk_elo_statisztikus.1377.html
We had the pleasure to host Pedro Garcia da Silva, who assisted us in assembling a new fiber photometry rig!
Balazs gave an interview for the ‘Szertár’ podcast series – in Hungarian.

Balazs was lecturing at the 5th edition of the Transylvanian Neuroscience Summer School.
Joshua Sanders was visiting us to help assemble open source behavior control systems. In addition, Josh gave an institutional seminar titled “Sanworks: Open systems to connect brain function with behavior”. Abstract of the talk: In the human effort to understand how brain processing produces behavior, the range of behaviors we will need to capture quantitatively…
