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, […]
The recent FENS forum of 2022 saw a “passing of the torch” for FENS leadership. It is our great pleasure to congratulate Dr. Poirazi, now elected as Secretary General, alongside Prof. Ole Kiehl (president elect) and Assoc. Prof. Aniko Korosi (treasurer elect)! See the press releases from FENS and FORTH for more details.
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. Chowdhury, A. […]
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 […]
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!!

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 […]
Neuroscientist and Einstein Visiting Fellow Panayiota Poirazi builds computational models of the tree-like dendrites that exist in the brain to better understand their role and to translate their functions into artificial knowledge. One of her aims is to teach algorithms to base their learning on prior knowledge in the same way that humans do. Read […]
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 […]
Whether you are a junior or senior researcher in Neuroscience, if dendrites are important in your work, don’t miss DENDRITES 2022! After being postponed due to the pandemic, the conference is now open for registration, and attendance will be in person! We hope to see you this May in sunny Heraklion! Find out more details […]
We are overjoyed to announce that Ioanna Pandi, a PhD student working in our lab, has been selected as an ELife ambassador for Europe – a prestigious position that only 21 others can lay claim to this year. Working with 127 other ambassadors from all around the globe, Ioanna will be striving to enact positive […]
