Potluck dinner

PALM group Potluck dinner on June 19th 2018. We celebrated the end of another fruitful year filled with interesting PALM meetings, many experiments and even more ideas for experiments!


Areas V1 and V2 show microsaccade‐related 3–4‐Hz covariation in gamma power and frequency

Lowet, E., Roberts, M. J., Bosman, C. A., Fries, P., & De Weerd, P. (2015) European Journal of Neuroscience, 2015, 43(10): 1286-1296. Abstract Neuronal gamma-band synchronization (25-80 Hz) in visual cortex appears sustained and stable during prolonged visual stimulation when investigated with conventional averages across trials. However, recent studies in macaque […]


Genomewide analysis of rat barrel cortex reveals time-and layer-specific mRNA expression changes related to experience-dependent plasticity

Vallès, A., Boender, A. J., Gijsbers, S., Haast, R. A., Martens, G. J., & de Weerd, P. (2011) The Journal of Neuroscience, 31(16), 6140-6158. Abstract Because of its anatomical organization, the rodent whisker-to-barrel system is an ideal model to study experience-dependent plasticity. Manipulation of sensory input causes changes in the […]
