Pioneer exploration of inhibitory synapse plasticity in memory stabilisation: interview with Professor Jack R. Mellor

How can memories prevail for long with sufficient specificity and accuracy? University of Bristol researchers recently published results[1] that contribute to understanding memory acuity and its resistance to interference. Following a new line of research on long-term modifications in the brain, termed synaptic plasticity, provided insight on stable memory formation in the hippocampus.… Read the rest

Interview – Rebecca Nesbit

Rebecca Nesbit studied butterfly migration for her PhD, then worked for a start-up company training honeybees to detect explosives. She now works in science communication and her projects have ranged from a citizen science flying ant survey to visiting universities around the world with Nobel Laureates.Read the rest
