Mr. Artur Koroknai has joined Peter Somogyi's lab for his month long scholarship under the Oxford Cajal Scholarship scheme. He won the Ramon y Cajal essay competition on the organisation of the brain.
The title of his essay was: "Tükrözi-e az idegrendszer szerkezete és működése fejlettségi szintjét? - Does the structure of the nervous system reflects its developmental level? Or... Why humans are causing the sixth great extinction of life in the history of the Earth?"
Artur will matriculate next year in the Franciscan Gimnázium of Szentendre, Hungary, a town where Prof Somogyi studied.
In Oxford, he learns concepts of brain organisation and participates in the analysis of neuronal circuits in the hippocampus using microscopic methods.
