The 155th BrainClub was held

In the 155th BrainClub、We invited Dr. Thomas Chater from the RIKEN CBS Synaptic Plasticity and Circuit Regulation Research Team (2/15(Wed) 16:00~17:30)。The subject was "Towards a logic of homo- and heterosynaptic dynamics following plasticity」です。from recent research、A phenomenon called "Heterosynaptic plasticity" has been found in which plasticity occurs in neighboring synapses when a plasticity-inducing stimulus is applied to a specific synapse.。For Chater teacher this time、Observation of spine morphology and Ca using hippocampal slice culture and two-photon microscopy2+learned from imaging、He gave a lecture on interactions between spines that cause heterosynaptic plasticity.。Regarding the spatio-temporal control mode between synapses、A heated discussion took place, including unpublished data.。Commemorative photo @ seminar room with members of Yuzuzaki Lab after the lecture (upper photo)。In the center is Mr. Chater, the performer.。It was a raging BrainClub rush。Hope next time。(Press conference)

The 154th BrainClub was held

 University of California (UC Irvine, America)Dr. Kei Igarashi from、The 154th BrainClub was held (2/6(month) 17:30~19:00)。The title of the lecture was "Associative memory formation mechanism by dopamine and its failure in Alzheimer's disease"。The target is the formation and maintenance process of memory that is established based on olfactory information.、optogenetics andin vivoWe have clarified so far using electrophysiological techniques、He gave a lecture on the brain circuitry that controls memory.。Also、What kind of breakdown of brain circuit mechanism occurs in memory disorder of Alzheimer's disease?、Talk about the latest findings, including unpublished data.、A lively question-and-answer session ensued。

The above photo is a commemorative photo taken after the lecture.。In the center is Igarashi-sensei (next to Yuzuzaki-sensei)。A lot of "recruits" of Yuzuzaki Lab are also reflected。I was careless and the update didn't catch up、excuse me (interview)
