Bio: Dr. Michael Häusser is working in the field of understanding synaptic integration and dendritic function. He has made important advances in revealing how the integrative properties of single neurons, and in particular of their dendrites, contribute to regulating information flow and memory storage in neural networks; and his group has also been instrumental in developing new approaches for recording from single neurons and small networks of neurons in vitro and in vivo using a combination of optical and electrophysiological approaches.
Cedric Notredame Phenome code: How behavior predicts the future of the brain Mankind has always been obsessed about measuring things and doing predictions. Measuring, comparing, classifying and discovering. All modern experimental sciences rely on this simple combination and any time scientists change the way they measure things, they are also forced to change the way they think. Many times, measurements are right but not the correlations which are done with them. Bioinformatics open a new door to a large amount of data, predictions and discoveries.
