Edinburgh update – November 2014

From perception to behaviour Initially scaled a drosophila adult spiking network (Wessnitzer et al. 2012) to larva size by collecting known data on the number of ORNs, projection neurons and Kenyon cells. Verified it can display conditioning with a simple … Continue reading

Prof. Dr. Bertram Gerber (BG)

seeks to understand how mnemonic function – the acquisition, maintenance, and behavioural impact of memory – is organised at the levels of molecules, neurons, and neuronal circuits[103], [104][46][34]. We use behaviour experiments on larval and adult Drosophila which provide an experimental handle on … Continue reading
