Imaging mRNA localisation in memory-relevant neurons in the Drosophila brain

January 28 @ 12:00 - 13:00

Join us on 28th January 2020 at 12pm for PIZZA and Science in the Sherrington Room.  Abstract: Memories are encoded in Drosophila as dopamine driven changes in the efficacy of synaptic connections between Mushroom Body Kenyon Cells and Mushroom Body Output Neurons (MBONs). Evidence from flies and mammals suggests that some learning-relevant synaptic plasticity requires local translation of new proteins within specific neuronal processes. Neurons therefore have to deliver the relevant mRNAs to these neuronal compartments as a means of spatially and temporally regulating protein…

Optical dissection of the thalamocortical circuits underlying the processing of sensory information in the mouse somatosensory system

February 11 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Dr Tommaso Fellini (from the Italian Institute of Technology) will be speaking on optical dissection of the thalamocortical circuits underlying the processing of sensory information in the mouse somatosensory system. The event will take place on 11th Feb 2020 at 4 pm in the Sherrington library. If you would like to join us for after-talk pub with the speaker, sign up at: https://forms.gle/bmf2cjm49UvZHFAT8 Abstract: Sensory cortices are organized in multiple interconnected layers and contain several functionally distinct neural subnetworks. Elucidating…
