Our study on sensory and motor contribution to Purkinje cell activity is now online.
in larval zebrafish
The Griesbeck lab developed a new screening platform that has been used to evolve a new far-red fluorescent protein named mCarmine. Together we showed the applicability of mCarmine in vivo. This study was recently published in Cell Chemical Biology.
Members of the lab attended summer schools in Lisbon, Cold Spring Harbor and Woods Hole
The whole lab attended the FENS Forum, the largest European neuroscience conference, with 6 posters presented.
We are releasing Stytra, our open-source software toolbox for building and running behavioural experiments, developed by Luigi Petrucco and Vilim Štih.
Ruben was again an invited lecturer at the Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School, this time assisted by Daniil and Elena in teaching the participants to build a lightsheet microscope.
Laura and Ruben succesfully applied for a DFG grant (# PO 2105/2-1) to study the cerebellum in larval zebrafish.
The Joachim Herz foundation awarded Andreas a 2-year fellowship to investigate cerebellar circuitry and computations.
Virginia Palieri submitted her Master's thesis on the anatomy of eurydendorid cells.
Megan Carey visited our institute as a postdoc invited speaker and met the members of our lab.
Luigi took part in the course on Interacting with Neural Circuits at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown in Lisbon, Portugal, and Vilim attended the Berkeley summer course in mining and modeling of neuroscience data.
The lab has moved to a newly-renovated wing of the institute. The offices and behavioural experiments are now in one large space, while the light- and electrical interference sensitive equipment are in separate rooms.
Ruben was a lecturer at the Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School in June 2017.
Our first paper on the functional characterisation of larval zebrafish granule cells is published in the journal Current Biology.
