First anniversary and data from the lab

On the first anniversary of the lab, we obtained our first whole cell recording in vivo, in V1 as a mouse navigates virtual reality. We also have our first fibre photometry data! It's not the biggest news, but certainly a milestone!

The Prediction & Plasticity lab will open at the University of Edinburgh in early 2023

After successfully interviewing in the stormy beginning of 2022, it is confirmed that Rebecca will start the lab as a Simons ESAT fellow at the Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain at the University of Edinburgh! The lab will open in February 2023. Watch out for postdoctoral and PhD positions opening soon.
