Francesco Battaglia and Lisa Genzel receive the 2018 DCN Neurodeveloper fund. With this grant they will collaborate with Noldus Information Technology to develop a closed-loop, automatic sleep deprivation system that will have both an invasive as well as a non-invasive mode.
Our Lisa Genzel has just been awarded a competitive VIDI Grant by the NWO. The Laboratory will soon open 2 positions. Research will aim to investigate the interaction of sleep and novelty in memory consolidation. Electrophysiology and optogenetics will play a key role in understanding the interaction between the Hippocampus and the Prefrontal Cortex. More information here.
M-GATE is a new collaboration funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action of the European Union. We will host 15 talented young researchers in 8 top European institutions for Memory research. The network is coordinated by Francesco Battaglia. In the Memory Dynamics Lab, we will host three PHD positions, co-supervised by Francesco Battaglia and Lisa Genzel. The emphasis will be on hippocampal/cortical communication and oscillations. We seek candidates with a good quantitative background, interested in combining experimental and theoretical approaches.
Please see the M-GATE website for details on the project
