    Searching for a word, forgetting an event, losing focus quickly, these are all features that accompany dementia, a disease which affects almost 50 million people worldwide. In Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia, cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain progressively die. Not...

    Judit Makara focuses on how dendrites contribute to and actively shape neuronal activity, and what molecular mechanisms underlie these processes. She tries to understand what dendrites are good for, why they are so heterogeneous, and how they play a role in memory formation. To investigate such...

    Light microscopy has probably always been the most essential tool in biological research. This ever improving technique has been making huge advancements even in recent years. Improved resolution, better signal detection, automation are just a few examples that make our life easier in the lab and...
