Esther Vinner gave a talk on her present research regarding "The neural mechanism of motor tic reduction during sleep", at the annual meeting of the Gonda brain center at Kfar-Blum.
Yocheved Loewenstern participated in the OIST Computational Neuroscience Course in Okinawa, Japan. As part of the course she presented her PhD study and the course student project modeling the striatum during motor tic expression.
Ayala Matzner and Esther Vinner presented their work at the poster session of the IBAGS annual meeting in Biarritz, France.
The poster of Ayala focused on "Input dependent encoding of basal ganglia neurons",and Esther presented their findings regarding "The neural mechanism underlying motor tic reduction during sleep".
We are pleased to have our new lab members, Yehoshua Stern and Nadav Schweitzer, and wish them good luck in their research.
Congratulations to the research team in our lab, Ayala Matzner, Yuval al-Hanani and Prof. Izhar Bar-Gad, who won an award for Parkinson's disease research and was ranked second in the international competition BEAT-PD.
Orel Tahary participated in the interactive track of the Neuromatch academy Computational neuroscience course. As part of the course's group projects, he used various methods to predict the time and direction of mice movements from its neuronal activity in several brain regions
