Peptidergic Neuromodulation of Sensory Representation in the Brain

Animals interact with and respond to their environment by processing sensory inputs such as visual and auditory cues, touch, taste and smell. How an animal responds to sensory inputs however depends on its internal state (e.g. sleep, wakefulness, stress, fed or starved conditions), such that the ...

Functional dissection of the head-direction circuit in mouse retrosplenial cortex.

Head direction (HD) cells provide directional information during spatial navigation and thus act as an internal compass. The goal of this study is to understand how the HD circuit creates a lasting neural trace of transient directional changes. Cells selective for HD have been identified in sever...

Integrating Ecosystem Heterogeneity to Enhance ESM Performance

Earth system models (ESM) are widely used to predict future climate and inform policy (e.g. IPCC). Recent research suggests that ESM do a poor job predicting future climate because they exclude microbial biogeochemical cycling and soil heterogeneity (e.g. texture), which affect the climate system...

Adaptive plasticity meets unpredictability: how do organisms cope with changing environmental variability?

Natural populations are continually exposed to environmental change and respond in the short-term via plastic mechanisms and over longer time periods by genetic adaptation. Both plastic and genetic responses to changes in the mean environment are well understood. However, less is known about the ...
