2020 Sep CarlenLab receives 32.2M SEK grant
Sep 30 2020
The CarlénLab receives 3.0M€ (32.2M SEK) for the project “Brain circuits in decision-making” from the Knut & Alice Wallenbergs Foundation!
The project will run over 5 years and be conducted in collaboration with the lab of KONSTANTINOS MELETIS. The interactions between the prefrontal cortex and the striatum will be studied with large-scale electrophysiology and calcium imaging in behaving mice.

CarlenLab alumni Sofie Ährlund-Richter receives the Brain Diseases Award 2020 from the UZH Foundation for her PhD thesis work ‘On the neuronal correlates of cognition; cell-type specific circuitry and function of the prefrontal cortex!
2020 Aug Marina Slashcheva selected for the MSCA ITN position
UPDATE: Marina Slashcheva has been selected for the PhD position in the CarlenLab within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action MSC-ITN-2019 project euSNN, European School of Network Neuroscience, www.eusnn.eu

2020 July The DMCdrive goes live!
The DMCdrive goes live!
Want to long-term record and manipulate neuronal activity in freely moving mice or rats? Then we strongly recommend going for our DMCdrive holding four movable tetrodes + optical fiber, that can be built from 3D printed parts in 4h without much experience. Very reliable optotagging and recovery of single unit and LFP activities over many days.
Designed by senior researcher Hoseok Kim.
Open access to the publication here.

2019 Sep Postdoc Pirre Le Merre receives 2019 NARSAD YIA
CarlenLab postdoc Pierre Le Merre receives 2019 NARSAD Young Investigator Grant!
“The NARSAD Young Investigator Grants were initiated to fund innovative, cutting-edge research projects relevant to serious brain and behaviour disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders or child and adolescent mental illnesses.
Pierre Le Merre, from the Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet, is one of the “promising young candidates with innovative ideas within the field of mental health research” to receive the two-year grant.
The grant, which offers 35 000 USD per year for two years, will enable him to identify the neuronal determinants of working memory in the prefrontal cortex. Working memory is a core cognitive function affected in mental disorders such as schizophrenia. Therefore, this research programme aims to diagnose better and treat the cognitive deficits of schizophrenia.”
