Astrocytes in memory and plasticity

Astrocytes in memory and plasticity

We modulate astrocytic activity in brain slices and in-vivo to test their contribution to neuronal plasticity and memory processes

Imaging Memory

Imaging Memory

We image neuronal activity in recent and remote memory of mice behaving in a virtual reality.

Astrocytes and neurons in behavior

Astrocytes and neurons in behavior

We manipulate neuronal and glial activity in behaving mice using optogenetic and chemogenetic tools to examine the involvement of these cells in recent and remote memory

CLARITY of recent and remote memory

CLARITY of recent and remote memory

We map the ensembles of recent and remote memory in clear brains

Glial modulation

Glial modulation

We are continuously creating and optimizing new viral tools aimed to deliver optogenetic and pharmacogenetic agents into glial cells

Astrocytic Heterogeneity

Astrocytic Heterogeneity

"Astrocytes" - one word for a big family... we are using state of the art molecular biology techniques to define astrocytic sub-populations, and understand their unique contributions to physiology.
