We are pleased to welcome Dr. Daniel Swiejkowski to the Unit. Daniel has joined Thomas Klausberger's group as an MRC Career Development Fellow to examine temporal relationships between the medial septum, the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex.
Daniel completed his Ph.D. studies under the supervision of Professor Andrzej Wróbel at the Laboratory of the Visual System, Nencki Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, and spent further two years as a member of Professor Paul Heggelund's research groupat the University of Oslo.
We welcome the return of Dr John Tukker for a short visit to Professor Somogyi lab. John completed his Ph.D. with Dr Thomas Klausberger and Professor Somogyi and is now a postdoctoral scientist at the Humbold-Universitat zu Berlin.
Miss Fahrat is visiting the laboratory from January until July 2014 to study GABAergic inhibitory interneurons in the hippocampus. For the visit, she was awarded a stipend from Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. Her visit is part of her Ph.D. in National University of Sciences and Technology in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Dr. Stéphanie Trouche joins the Unit as an MRC Investigator Scientist. Stéphanie’s previous research has focused on the neural circuits underlying memory processes and has employed system-neuroscience approach combining behavioural, neuroanatomical and imaging tools. In September 2009, Stéphanie obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Toulouse, France, where she examined the contribution of new hippocampal neurons to spatial memory processes.
We are pleased to welcome back Professor Yannis Dalezios from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Crete, for a short collaborative visit to Professor Peter Somogyi's Lab.
Professor Dalezios studies the synaptic interactions between neurons to reveal the organization of neural networks in the brain including cortical and subcortical oculomotor areas/nuclei, the neocortex and the hippocampus. His expertise in electron microscopy and statistics facilitates several projects and he also trains others.
We are pleased to welcome back Professor Laszlo Marton from the EMTE-Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania, Romania. Laszlo will join Professor Somogyi’s group to continue his ongoing collaboration with the group on novel signal analysis methods in freely behaving rat hippocampus.
