Visualization of newly formed synapses with unprecedented resolution

August 11, 2016 · by IMPRS-BB

Researchers from Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience optimized a spatiotemporally controlled method that induces and visualizes the formation of synapses in cortical neurons – Proper cell-to-cell connection is a fundamental mechanism for normal brain function; abnormal connections result in… Read more »

New insights into neural computations in cerebral cortex

June 13, 2016 · by IMPRS-BB

Study by Max Planck Florida scientists points to an active role for dendrites in cortical processing – Dendrites are the tree-like extensions from neurons that serve as the main location for synapses—the junctions that neurons use to communicate with each… Read more »

From retina to cortex: An unexpected division of labor

April 27, 2016 · by IMPRS-BB

Neurons in our brain do a remarkable job of translating sensory information into reliable representations of our world that are critical to effectively guide our behavior. The parts of the brain that are responsible for vision have long been center… Read more »
