Eurecca tackles three key questions for the IT industry

Eurecca tackles three key questions for the IT industry: Today's multicore processors are not being utilized in a sufficiently intelligent way. They get too hot and run slowly because they are used inefficiently. At the same time, transistors are becoming so small that they will ultimately become unreliable. Major European research organizations are now attempting to create a revolution in computer architecture.

Contribution to understanding the mechanisms underlying memory formation and coding in the brain via the use of computational models

Work in the Computational Biology Laboratory of IMBB-FORTH, which is headed by Dr. Panayiota Poirazi, has used computational models to show that a single neuronal cell in the brain is capable of detecting spatiotemporal differences of incoming signals and encoding them into its response pattern.

How proteins find their way out of cells, an essential mechanism for cellular function

The Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH participates in the effort to understand a fundamental biological problem, namely how cells regulate trafficking of their proteins. Some of the research results are presented in today's edition of Nature, one of the most authoritative international scientific journals. They stem from intercontinental cooperation between the research teams Tassos Economou, IMBB Researcher and Associate Professor at the Biology Department of the University of Crete and that of Charalambos Kalodimou, Associate Professor at Rutgers University (New Jersey, USA).
