New intern master student at DANDRITE

Islam Faress started as an intern master student in Sadegh Nabavi's group per 31 August. Islam is working on the project "Synaptic Tagging and Capture(STC)", which is one of the central mechanisms in neuronal signaling underlying learning and memory formation. Studying this rather intricate mechanism on the molecular, neurocircuitry and behavioral level is the ultimate goal of the project. It is multi-phase, and includes high-end cognitive/behavioral and basic neuroscience research methodologies among them, optogenetics and electrophysiology in animal and ex vivo models.
