Primed for memory formation

A new study carried out in a collaboration between researchers from LMU and UC San Diego suggests that new sensory experiences are encoded in pre-existing patterns of neuronal activity, which are recalled, modulated and enhanced following periods of behavioral activity.

Opening the Black Box of Dendritic Computing

How do nerve cells compute? This fundamental question drives LMU neurobiologists led by Andreas Herz. They have now presented a novel method to disentangle complex neural processes in a much more powerful way than was previously possible.

Signals on the scales

How are the images cast on the retina reassembled in the brain? Researchers in Munich and Tübingen find that processing of visual stimuli occurs at the earliest waystation on the way to the visual cortex – but not all are treated equally.

Nerve cells as team players

Göttingen researchers explain how the eye recognizes motion: Special nerve cells in the eye indicate a shift in the line of sight. Groups of these cells contribute to the recognition of small eye movements and help to keep the viewing direction stable so that the image of the environment becomes clear.

Yin and Yang during synapse maturation in young brains

Synapse maturation and the timing of critical periods during brain development is governed by the balance of two signaling proteins with opposing functions.
