Group leader Anders Nykjær is co-author to new paper in Cell Reports

Protecting neurons from cell death following epilepsy A new paper paper by Malik et al in Cell Reports, coauthored by Anders Nykjaer, demonstrates that the receptor SorCS2 is protective against the brain damage that follows an epileptic seizure. They find that SorCS2 secures proper expression of EEAT3, a transporter that mediates cellular uptake…

New insights into calcium transport may help develop new drugs

A normal function of the heart and nerve system is, among other things, dependent on proper regulation of calcium in the cells. This process depends on the proper functioning of the calcium pump. Poul Nissen and his research group at DANDRITE have conducted new studies of the calcium pump structure give new insight into this process, which may…

Now scientists can turn on and off brain cells

Article currently only available in Danish, English translation coming soon. Ved at sende laserlys ind igennem et fiberkabel i hovedet på mus kan forskere fra Aarhus Universitet nu slukke og tænde for neuroner. Det er et teknologisk gennembrud, som kan give ny viden om, hvordan hjernen fungerer.

DANDRITE Topical Seminar with DR. Hiroshi Ito
Abstract: "A prefrontal-thalamic circuit for route planning" The hippocampus and associated parahippocampal structures are key elements of the brain circuit that enables animals to navigate to desired locations in space. Many neurons in this circuit, such as place cells or grid cells, fire when animals visit particular locations, suggesting that these neurons are part of an internal map of the environment. However, while place cells or grid cells provide information about the animal’s instantaneous position, it is largely unclear how animals can plan an optimal route the destination.
