The Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (CNCB) is an autonomous research centre embedded in the stimulating world of the University of Oxford.
Optogenetics combines genetic targeting of specific cells or proteins with either optical imaging or optical control of these targets.
How the brain forms distinct memories: sparse odour coding by the Kenyon cells of the mushroom body generates a large number of precisely addressable locations for the storage of odour-specific memories.
Neurons do not operate in isolation. They function within circuits of often staggering complexity in which each cell is influenced by—and influences—many others.
