Madeny will work to uncover how brain builds abstract, nonlinear representations and how those representations drive behaviour. To achieve this objective, the research aims to extract principles behind circuit level cortical computations by monitoring activity of genetically identified cell-types in mice solving auditory non-linear classification…

Marco Capogna will receive the grant over a 3 year period for a project dedicated to discover novel cellular mechanisms linking anxiety and emotion with sleep deprivation. The project aims to test the hypothesis that nitric oxide-expressing GABAergic neurons are key cellular element in this process.
