Our team presented the last lab’s results at the SENC biennial congress in Lleida on past November 3-5. It was an intense but exciting meeting. Posters about the importance of brain state in tDCS effects, new optogenetics approach to deep on neuronal tDCS-mechanisms and the characterization of this non-invasive technique on thalamocortical loop were presentedContinue reading “SENC 2021”
The Pablo de Olavide University has published the following article about us. In the article they mention the results published in the journal Scientific Report which show important differences related to the polarity of the applied current and the appearance of long-term effects, allowing the improvement of the stimulation protocols currently used in the treatmentContinue reading “University News”
We have returned from Christmas with a lot of enthusiasm! Breakfast/meeting as soon as we arrive. We also celebrated 3 things: The new European project Neurotwin, Javi’s birthday and that Marta and Guille are staying to do their PhD here.
One of our members, Marta Estévez, participated at the VII Innovation and New Technologies Fair organized by the provincial delegation of Seville (Inpro). She participated in a conference that aimed to raise young people’s attention to technological studies. They discussed topics such as the role of women in the technology sector, the stereotypes set byContinue reading “Innovation Fair”
The national newspaper EL PAÍS interviewed Javier Marquez Ruiz about our Lab and the new European project that starts in January 2021, Project Neurotwin. In collaboration with 6 more laboratories all over Europe, we will build a computational framework – weaved and validated across scales and levels of detail– to represent the mechanisms of interactionContinue reading “EL PAÍS Newspaper”
Our University Pablo de Olavide wrote about us. Our team in collaboration with Harvard University in the United States, have managed to improve the antiepileptic effects with transcranial electrical stimulation in combination with some specific drugs. The results have been recently published in the prestigious journal ‘Annals of Neurology’. The experiments, carried out on rats,Continue reading “University News”
Our partner Guillermo Sánchez-Garrido Campos was invited as a guest teacher to participate in an online seminar of the Psychology Program from Universidad de la Costa, CUC (Barranquilla, Colombia). During May 26th-27th and June 1st (2020), the Psychobiology Course pupils learned about several fields from the neuroscience, specifically the ones below: Neuronal Excitation/Inhibition balance andContinue reading “Guest teacher at Universidad de la Costa, CUC (Barranquilla, Colombia)”
Carlos A. Sánchez-León took part in the project “Somos Científicos“. Students from 10 to 18 years old interact with scientists through the Internet. It is a contest in divulgation for scientific researchers in which the students are the judges. Students can chat with the scientists and ask them questions. At the end they vote onContinue reading “Somos Científicos”
Javier Márquez Ruiz, along with other participants, talked in the NYC Neuromodulation Conference about the mechanisms of the transcranial electrical stimulation. In particular, Javier discussed the neuronal mechanisms that underlie the effects produced by non-invasive stimulation techniques in awake mice.
The Society for Neuroscience annual gathering of the Society for Neuroscience it was held in Chicago. Javier Márquez Ruiz, Carlos A. Sánchez-León and Álvaro Sánchez López attended the meeting and, in addition, Carlos presented a poster there.
