Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity

What is CINPLA?

CINPLA combines experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to study neural plasticity and develop computational and theoretical tools for understanding plasticity on multiple scales.

News from CINPLA

  • Best lecturer of the year: Marianne Fyhn Nov. 15, 2021 11:21 AM

    Hvert år kårer Matematisk-naturvitenskapelig studentutvalg (MNSU) den beste foreleseren ved Det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultet. I 2021 falt valget på professor Marianne Fyhn. Studentene sier hun er en «kunnskapsrik og engasjerende foreleser som virkelig vekker studentenes interesse for faget."

  • Open PhD position: spatial and social coding in the brain Oct. 5, 2021 1:04 PM

    Join the team for a 3 year position as PhD candidate. The aim of the current project is to determine how social and spatial information are integrated in the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex. The candidate will use state-of-the-art electrophysiological recordings combined with optogenetic manipulations of brain activity and measurement of animal behavior.

    Deadline for application: 17/10-2021

  • New preprint: viral vectors for in vivo calcium imaging May 19, 2021 1:13 PM

    An updated suite of viral vectors for in vivo calcium imaging using local and retro-orbital injections

    We show that systemic injections of PHP.eB AAVs to express GECIs is a highly promising technique for imaging neural activity and circumvent the need for transgenic GECI expressing mouse lines. We also establish the use of novel soma-targeted GECIs that outperform current Ca2+ indicators using both systemic and local virus injections.
