Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience presents Sunposium 2019, the fourth biennial conference highlighting some of the most complex issues at the forefront of understanding neural circuits.
Sphingosine inhibits the enzyme GBA2, thereby regulating the degradation of lipid-sugar compounds in cells. Sphingosine, a compound as enigmatic as the sphinx, plays a key role in the metabolic disorder Gaucher disease. Scientists from the Bonn research center caesar have… Read more »
A recent study published in “Neuron” provides insights into the interplay between the cellular properties of single neurons, their connections and the network architecture. Cortical neurons receive thousands of excitatory and inhibitory signals, both from local and long-range circuits. To… Read more »
EU sponsors research conducted at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases. Bonn-based neuroscientist Prof. Stefan Remy (41) will receive the “Consolidator Grant” from the European Research Council (ERC) worth EUR 1.8 million. The Grant is a special award because, apart from the high funding… Read more »
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 »
