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.
