Welcome to new student Laurie Frances

Laurie's work consists in testing new promising molecules on human cells to inhibit PCSK9, a protein overexpressed in many metabolic diseases such as coronary artery disease (CAD) or familial obesity. Inhibiting PCSK9 will increase the LDL receptors rate and therefore decrease greatly the LDL-cholesterol in the blood, preventing cholesterol to…

AIAS Fellows' Seminar by Tomonori Takeuchi on "Memory modulation by light"
Most of our everyday memories are forgotten. However, retention of these trivial memories is enhanced when something novel happens shortly before or after the time of memory encoding. Using a cutting-edge method of cell-type specific activation of brain cells by light, we found that inputs from the brain area called ‘the locus coeruleus’ to ‘the hippocampus’, another brain area, drive the novelty-induced memory enhancement via a release of one brain chemical called ‘dopamine’.
