Balázs Rózsa and his team, researchers from the BrainVisionCenter (BVC), in collaboration with the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel and Pázmány Péter University, have discovered previously unknown features of neuronal plasticity in the hippocampus of awake animals. Their work was published in Nature Communications.
Reward, punishment and the VIP neurons
Wednesday, 11 January, 2023
Researchers at KOKI, Pázmány Péter Catholic University, and the BrainVisionCenter (BVC), founded in 2021 by Botond Roska, Balázs Rózsa, and ITM, in collaboration with colleagues at Washington University in St. Louis, have described a previously unidentified, cortical-wide principle that contributes to the success of early learning.
Dogma-challengers. Another discovery in the thalamus
Monday, 9 January, 2023
For the thalamus, you will find the name of the Acsády group. And if it is the Acsády group, you will sooner or later realize that nothing in the thalamus is as we have thought for a hundred years. A study published in Nature Neuroscience, with Nóri Hádinger as the first co-author, describes a new cortico-thalamic pathway.

Orientation and decisions are not just for sailors
Wednesday, 16 November, 2022
Balázs Ujfalussy (ELKH KOKI) and Gergő Orbán (ELKH Wigner) discovered that the rodent nervous system can not only predict the position of the animal during orientation but also anticipate the uncertainty of the prediction in the short term. The study has been published in the prestigious international journal eLife.
Varietes delectat or the diversity of synapses
Monday, 24 October, 2022
Using a combination of state-of-the-art physiological and anatomical methods, Zoltán Nusser's group has succeeded in discovering how an axon of the same nerve cell can form synapses of different strengths with two different nerve cells. Short answer: synaptic vesicles are in different maturation states in weak and strong synapses. Their work was published in Neuron.
