Visually evoked signals in the retina pass through the dorsal geniculate nucleus (dLGN) on the way to the visual cortex. This is however not a simple feedforward flow of information: there is a significant feedback from cortical cells back to both relay cells and interneurons in the dLGN. In this paper the authors use a firing rate model to investigate the functional role of this massive feedback.

The biggest running event in Norway is a relay with 15 legs (about 15km) in the scenic Oslo. This year it was a big duel between University of Oslo and OsloMet. Among the 40+ teams in this group CINPLA was number 1. It was a great summer day with more than 40 000 runners in action.

Neurons’ sugar coating is essential for long-term memories

How the brain is able to store memories over long periods of time has been a persistent mystery to neuroscientists. In a new study, researchers from the Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) at the University of Oslo show that long-lived extracellular matrix molecules called perineuronal nets are essential for distant memories.

The new research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that removal of the nets disrupts distant but not recent memories.
