Welcome Richard!

Last week, Richard Ho from the University of Edinburgh joined our group as a postdoc. Richard will develop models that will help to understand regulatory mechanisms acting during neural pattern specification in the developing spinal cord.

Brain on waves

Together with Jeremi Ochab we organized workshop on how brain process information. Over 2-days gifted high school students from Polish Children’s Fund visited Jeremi’s lab in which we planned and carried out experiments using EEG. We measured response times and action potentials resulting from different visual stimuli, and verified a few research hypotheses. It was fun & science!
