We are pleased to welcome Dr Miguel Valencia from CIMA-University of Navarra (http://www.cima.es/areas/neurosciences) for a month visit to the Unit, who will be working in collaboration with Dr Juan Mena-Segovia on the dynamical interaction between brain structures in Parkinsonism.
Miguel is a Superior Engineer in Telecommunications with profound interest in biomedical research. In 2006 he finished his PhD in Physics studying dynamics of cortical and basal ganglia oscillatory activity in healthy subjects and in Parkinson's disease. Then he spent two years as a postdoctoral scientist at the Centre de Recherche de l'Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Épinière (http://www.cricm.upmc.fr/) (Paris, France), developing techniques for the analysis of complex brain networks. He is a specialist in signal analysis, and currently he is studying complex systems dynamics and has developed applications and software utilities opening new approaches to analyse brain signals.
Dr. Miguel Valencia has returned to the Unit to continue an on-going collaboration with Dr. Juan Mena-Segovia on the interaction between the cortex and subcortical structures across brain states and during chronic dopamine depletion. Miguel is a staff scientist at the Centre for Applied Medical Research (http://www.cima.es/areas/neurosciences), from the University of Navarra, Spain, where he works on the interaction of basal ganglia structures during health and disease.
Mr. Manuel Valero joins the group of Professor Peter Somogyi for three months under the supervision of Dr Tim Viney. He studies for a PhD in the group of Dr Liset Ménendez de la Prida at the Cajal Institute in Madrid, (http://www.hippo-circuitlab.es) where he applies an arsenal of techniques including multi-site and single-cell recordings in anesthesiated and awake animals, and data analysis to explain hippocampal neuronal activity.
We are pleased to welcome back Klara Peto from St Istvan University, Budapest, Hungary for a return visit for ongoing collaborative work in Professor Somogyi's lab. She studies the synaptic targets of basket cells in the prefrontal cortex.http://www.univet.hu/
