Memory rehearsal in wakefulness rapidly engenders an enduring engram in posterior parietal cortex! Very excited to share our latest on imaging microstructural plasticity in humans, published today in @sciencemagazine! Great work, Svenja Brodt!
We're very excited to announce #SUsHi2020! The first Single Units and Human iEEG Meeting & Workshop is taking place in Birmingham from 1-3 April 2020. Take a look at the website for more info and register your interest - registration will open late 2019!
Our newly published work on sleep as an early biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease risk. Wonderful efforts from grad student, Joe Winer.
Interested in doing a PhD on (the neuronal basis of) #stress and #memory? Glad you are :) We are hiring a research associate (65% position, initially 2 years) in our lab! Announcement below (in German). For queries you may also contact Prof. Schwabe. https://www.dgps.de/uploads/tx_powermail/Stellenausschreibung_UHH.pdf …
'Alzheimer’s pathology targets distinct memory networks in the ageing brain' in @Brain1878. Masterpiece from @anne_maass with @david_berron @DuzelLab @tessamharrison and data from @UCBerkeley and @UCSFmac. https://academic.oup.com/brain/advance-article-abstract/doi/10.1093/brain/awz154/5519092#.XQWHi82E3V4.twitter …
Our new preprint is out! We find that the cortical feedback to V1 during visual mental imagery and illusory perception is decodable from distinct layers (mental imagery: deep, illusory perception: superficial layers). With @andrewt_morgan and @LarsMuckli.
Latest from Buzsáki lab out in @sciencemagazine: Long-duration hippocampal sharp wave ripples improve #memory https://science.sciencemag.org/content/364/6445/1082?utm_campaign=toc_sci-mag_2019-06-13&et_rid=280317597&et_cid=2859375 … #hippocampus
For me- #OHBM2019 top spot goes to Francesco Pavone - spectacular talk on clearing techniques for imaging at single cell level. Also v impressed with Svenja Brodt on memory engrams and @MarcoPalombo3 on soma mapping.
You are in Rome @OHBM and interested in memory and plasticity? Come to our symposium on „Imaging Experience-Dependent Plasticity in the Human Brain!“ At 8.00 am tomorrow, Svenja Brodt, Valeria Della-Maggiore, @heidijoberg and Yanif Assaf will present exciting data! #OHBM2019
@JamesWardAntony and I wrote a short response to the recent Yonelinas et al paper that reinterpreted evidence for systems consolidation in a contextual binding framework. We lay out some reasons to keep the idea of systems consolidation around.
How do animals learn? New work identifies the higher-order thalamocortical pathway as a site of rapid synaptic plasticity during learning. These higher-order thalamic inputs are strengthened sequentially, first on L5 and then on L2 pyramidal neurons.
I wrote about why the downturn of storytelling in #GameofThrones also explains why it's hard for us to deal with Facebook, YouTube, AI, etc. The show was a rare beast: a sociological narrative in a world dominated by psychological/individualized ones. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/the-real-reason-fans-hate-the-last-season-of-game-of-thrones/ …
Nothing like a massive prediction error to spark some interesting think pieces.
