Marco Capogna’s group contributed to the 8th FENS forum of neuroscience held in Barcelona. Marco Capogna joined the FENS Satellite Meeting: “How mind emerges from brain, a view into the future” (download PDF of programme), organised by B-Debate, Barcelona, and gave a talk entitled: “Theta network oscillations: focus on GABAergic cells”. Marco Capogna was also a speaker at the FENS symposium S55 entitled: “Amygdala inhibitory circuits and the control of fear”.
The laboratory presented three posters which were all well attended. Miroslawa Manko, a DPhil student, and Thomas Bienvenu (funded by Region Aquitaine Grant from Cyril Herry's lab INSERM Bordeaux) presented posters on amygdala neurons in vitro and in vivo, entitled “Mechanisms of GABAA-slow evoked by NPY expressing GABAergic cells in amygdala”, and “Structure and function of a novel intercalated cell type in the amygdala”, respectively. Gengyu Li, a DPhil student, presented data in a poster on hippocampal GABAergic neurons obtained using paired recording and voltage-imaging approaches. The title of the poster was: “Nitric oxide modulates synaptic inhibition in the stratum lacunosum moleculare of the hippocampus”.
