FORTH Researcher Panagiota Poirazi has been awarded an Einstein Visiting Fellowship to investigate neuronal mechanisms of behavioral flexibility
Dr. Panayiota Poirazi, a Research Director at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of FORTH, is the recipient of a prestigious Einstein Visiting Fellowship of the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
Computational modeling in the Poirazi lab (www.dendrites.gr) at IMBB-FORTH (www.imbb.forth.gr) shed new light on how Fast Spiking Basket Cells – a central subtype of GABAergic inhibitory neurons- integrate their incoming signals, taking advantage of their recently discovered dendritic non-linearities. The article, entitled: “Challenging the point neuron dogma: FS basket cells as 2-stage nonlinear integrators” authored by IMBB researchers Alexandra Tzilivaki, George Kastellakis and Panayiota Poirazi was recently published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

Nektarios Tavernarakis, Research Director at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of the Foundation of Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), and Professor at the Medical School of the University of Crete was elected a Corresponding Member of the Academy of Athens.
New breakthrough research by FORTH is published in NATURE: High velocity sound waves of matter for extremely fast atom circuits.
Scientists at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology- Hellas (FORTH) led by Dr. Wolf von Klitzing created an accelerator ring for neutral atoms that is able to accelerate Bose-Einstein condensates to speeds much faster than the speed of sound and transport them to record distances.
The most important Polymer Scientists from Academic and Research Institutions from all over the world will be gathering at the Creta Maris Convention Center & Beach Resort in Hersonissos from Sunday the 9th to Friday the 14th of June 2019.
Graphene, as one-atom-thick membrane, is susceptible to morphological instabilities such as wrinkles, crumples and folds, which are attributed to several physical causes, such as the mismatch between its thermal expansion and its host substrate or the relaxation of a pre-strained substrate. A particular pattern encountered in graphene grown via Chemical Vapour Deposition is that of mosaic formation, which results from the imposition of thermo-mechanical stresses upon cooling from high temperatures.
