Faculty Talks With Martin Lauritzen’s group

We proudly present the first Neuroscience.rocks seminar featuring Martin Lauritzen together with his post docs Sanne Barsballe Jessen and Krzysztof Kucharz.

Thursday, May 28 at 16:00 in the Faculty Club.

Program

  • Martin will give an introduction about his laboratory’s research.
  • Sanne  will be speaking about “Gamma activity and neurovascular coupling in aging – electrophysiology and two-photon imaging in vivo” .
  • Krzysztof  will talk about “The neuronal endoplasmic reticulum fission-fusion. 2-photon imaging and characterization of the novel phenomenon in vivo” .

After the talks, refreshments will be served. We are looking forward to seeing you all there.

Research
How is the brain powered? And what goes wrong when we age, or suffer from a neurodegenerative disorder? The lab’s research is focused on determining the relation between function, signalling (information processing), energy turnover and energy supply in the nervous system of normal and aged rodents, and in animals with a neurodegenerative disease.

Techniques
The laboratory use a combination of techniques to study neuroenergetics: electrophysiological techniques to record spike activity from single cells and local field potentials. This is combined with electro-chemically recorded oxygen consumption, assessment of local blood flow with double-wavelength laser-Doppler flowmetry, and multi-photon microscopy for in vivo measurements of calcium dy-namics in rats and mice, including genetically modified animals.
