Serdecznie zapraszamy na seminarium Zakładu III

mgr Magdalena Morawiec i mgr Bartosz Jura z Pracowni Modelowania i Metod Elektrofizjologicznych

wygłoszą wykład na temat: Mysterious ripples. Elucidating mechanisms of memory consolidation with co-recording of brain electrical activity and intracranial fNIRS signals in freely moving animals

Seminarium odbędzie się w dniu 7 listopada (środa) o godz. 12:00 w Sali im. prof. A. Moreckiego


We will present the project in which we perform simultaneous recordings of brain electrical activity (Local Field Potentials) and blood oxygenation signals using functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy technique (fNIRS) with optodes implanted in the brain of freely moving animals. Special focus will be put on the hippocampal Sharp-Wave Ripple (SWRs) complexes which are thought to facilitate consolidation of memory traces during sleep. We will describe results that we have obtained thus far and show how the SWRs and other hippocampal events affect energy consumption in the local neuronal populations.
