Featured in the Year’s Biggest Breakthroughs in Biology

Our collaborative study with the lab of Matthew Larkum that was published earlier this year  in Science Magazine has made into the Year’s Biggest Breakthroughs in Biology by Quanta Magazine. In a nutshell: Dr. Albert Gidon in the Larkum Lab (add link to the Larkum lab) discovered that L2/3 neurons in the human brain have a new type […]

Reflections on the past two decades of neuroscience research

This year, Nature Reviews Neuroscience marked its 20th anniversary since the publication of its first issue. To celebrate this milestone, the editors invited prominent figures in the field of Neuroscience to write a Viewpoint article on what developments they consider particularly interesting and what research directions they envision for the future.

Check out our most exhaustive review (yet) on dendritic modelling

Dendrites in the spotlight It’s been more than a century since dendrites captivated the curious minds of pioneer neuroanatomists –Ramon y Cajal and Wilhelm His being among the most notable and well-cited ones–, yet, we neuroscientists are still as fascinated as ever. With the dendrites comprising the most delicate of building blocks underlying the chaotic structure of our […]

Uncovering the mechanisms of spatial deficits in epilepsy

Epilepsy’s impact is not limited to seizure events While most seizures resolve spontaneously after a few minutes, the long-term impact can be rather grim if the condition goes untreated. Significant memory and executive function deficits often ensue, taking a toll on patients’ daily lives. This is no surprise since the most common diagnosis for epilepsy involves […]
