Elucidating the role of local interneurons in fear leaning

Thursday, 18 October 2018

An interview with Dr Sabine Krabbe, Janelia, conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) While the functional role and plasticity mechanisms of projection neurons during associative learning have been extensively studied, to date, little is known about the contributions of local interneurons. In the second Emerging Neuroscientists Seminar Series (ENSS) lecture, Dr Sabine Krabbe outlined her research […]

The hippocampus: a predictive map?

Monday, 08 October 2018

An interview with Kim Stachenfeld, PhD, Research Scientist, DeepMind, conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) Groundbreaking research has established that neurons in the hippocampus encode a spatial representation of the environment, but clinical observations and additional evidence indicate that this brain region can process non-spatial, episodic information. In the following interview, Kim Stachenfeld, a Research […]

Uncovering the logic of spinal circuits

Friday, 05 October 2018

An interview with Graziana Gatto, PhD, conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) The somatosensory system plays a pivotal role in controlling movement via its reciprocal interactions with the spinal locomotor circuitry. In the inaugural lecture of the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre Emerging Neuroscientists Seminar Series (ENSS), Dr Graziana Gatto outlined her research detailing how dorsal spinal cord […]
