Alvilda Flensborg and Liv Tarp both attend the Aarhus Statsgymnasium majoring in Biotechnology. They accepted an invitation to come and follow two of our scientists, Assistant Professor Noemie Mermet-Joret and
Our research is confined between the synaptic and circuit levels. We investigate the mechanisms behind associative and fear memories, the proteins necessary for memory formation, and the synaptic and molecular processes of memory decay.
A fundamental challenge in the optogenetic toolbox is that all opsins, regardless of their excitation spectra, are activated by blue light. We hypothesized that pairing a red-shifted channelrhodopsin with a
