Our group's paper titled Depression uncouples brain hate circuit published recently in Nature Molecular Psychiatry has been ranked as #1 most viewed paper in the journal during the month of January 2013.
In a related development, Tian Ge, who is one of the co-authors of this paper, has received the prestigious Heng-Yuan-Xiang award for his outstanding achievements as a student in sensory, psychological or cognitive neuroscience and related areas.
Tian Ge, a PhD student in COMBI working with Prof Feng, will give an oral presentation (approx. 1% acceptance rate) titled 'Increasing Power for Voxel-wise Genome-wide Association Studies' (joint work with Dr Thomas Nichols in Warwick Statistics department and Prof Pual Thompson at UCLA) at the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) annual meeting to be held in Beijing in June, 2012.
Dr Timofeeva to chair workshop on Calcium dynamics in neuronal and glial cells
COMBI faculty Dr Yulia Timofeeva will chair a workshop titled 'Calcium dynamics in neuronal and glial cells' to be held at Warwick on April 4, 2011. This workshop will focus on the important role of calcium in controlling a great variety of neuronal and glial processes and on the bidirectional communication between glia and neurons. It will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working in the fields of neuroscience and cell biology for a critical discussion of recent results and future directions.
