Exploring the Concert of Neuronal Activities

How do real neural networks, composed of numerous different types of neurons, interconnected by complex arrangements of synapses, process information? Randy M. Bruno, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at the Department of Neuroscience, Columbia University, NY, USA is pursuing this question using the rodent whisker-barrel system. Here, anatomically and functionally distinct networks - barrels and barrel columns - are clearly identifiable, and the sensory transducers that provide input are directly controllable. more

Restless Receptors - Dynamic Organization of Synapses

Synapses are the switch-points in our brain for information transmission, learning and memory. And there is evidence to suggest that changes and malfunctions in synapses are partly responsible for a number of neurological and psychological disorders. Neuroscientists already know a lot about how signals are transmitted from neuron to neuron. Yet many synaptic processes are still not fully understood. Dr. more
