The fruit fly and its comb-shaped neurons

The fruit fly is one of the best-studied organisms in the world. Yet it still leaves questions unanswered. For example, how some of its neurons develop special, comb-like shape dendrites. ESI-scientists just conducted a study to answer it. And discovered something astonishing.

Algorithm detective determines suitable neuro-model

In research, collecting data can be difficult, but fitting the data into a model that explains the observations is a challenge on another level. In neuroscience, many experiments measure the activity of neurons. However, to understand what exactly happens in a neuronal network, the data needs to be explained by a model. So, which model fits which data? A novel method developed by Pedro J. Gonçalves, Jan-Matthis Lueckmann, Michael Deistler, Jakob Macke and colleagues automates this process.
