Supporting Mediterranean women in science

With the aim of giving a current image of Mediterranean science, the Seneca Foundation – Science and Technology Agency of the Region of Murcia offers the public its third exhibition on women scientists, this time as part of the European project MEDNIGHT – Mediterranean Researchers’ Night. It is a collection of short biographies with new, […]

Uncovering the role of neuromodulation in memory linking

We are excited to share our latest study in collaboration with the lab of Alcino Silva at UCLA.  This work, published in NEURON, explores the role of neuromodulation by dopamine to the linking of memories. Memories are often linked, meaning that recall of one memory triggers the recall of another. In this study, UCLA scientists A. Chowdhary, A. Luccetti […]

FENS 2022 plenary lecture: Learning with dendrites in brain and machines

Dr Poirazi recently represented Greece and IMBB-FORTH as a plenary speaker in FENS Forum 2022, the largest European Neuroscience meeting that took place this year in Paris . In her presentation, she discussed how computational modelling has helped us illuminate dendritic functions and their role in cognitive processes. She also presented the main findings of […]

Dendrites meet The Economist

How neurons really work is slowly being elucidated. That will help both Medicine and the search for better Artificial Intelligence. A recent article from The Economist lists our lab’s work among pioneering studies with far reaching implications in the fields of Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence!! For more information click here.

Check out this tribute to dendrites by leading experts of the field

A new Special Issue is available in Neuroscience: Dendritic contributions to biological and artificial computations, by guest editors Dr. Yiota Poirazi & Dr. Jackie Schiller. This SI includes fascinating articles by numerous leading experts on dendritic research. This SI was inspired by and will be featured at the EMBO Workshop on Dendrites, that will take […]

Congratulations to Anthi Apostolopoulou for receiving the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship!

Anthi Apostolopoulou received a highly competitive Marie Curie European Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at out lab. Her project is titled: ”GenieEffect – GABAergic INterneurons signaling ImbalancE; A promising target underlying PFC-dependent cognitive flexibility defects”. Anthi aims to investigate how inhibitory neutransmission dysfunctions affect physiology and cognitive flexibility. We look forward to seeing her succeed in […]

Don’t miss DENDRITES 2022!
