When you hear the words 'brain research', you think that this is what surgeons, physicians and physiologists are doing. In fact, many physicists are also researching the brain and this is what Milad H. Mobarhan talks about here.

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.

This paper presents a model fitting approach, where the model parameters (ion-channel conductances) are fitted in a stepwise manner and aims to reproduce  membrane potential dynamics in the soma and along the dendrites. The method could prove useful for fitting to data from voltage-sensitive dye (VSD) imaging techniques.

Perineuronal nets (PNNs) are proposed as a key regulator of plasticity in the adult brain.

In this paper we show that the expression of PNNs differ between visual cortex, hippocampus and the medial entorhinal cortex (mEC).
