OUR RESEARCH IN THE NEWS

Walking is bound hand and foot: How long projecting neurons couple the movement of our limbs
We humans walk with our feet. This is true, but not entirely. Walking, as part of locomotion, is a coordinated whole-body movement that involves both the arms and legs. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research have identified different subpopulations of neurons in the spinal cord with long projections. Published in “Neuron”, the results show that these neurons coordinate movement of arms and legs and ensure a stable body posture during locomotion. More

Going Deeper Down the Memory Lane
A research team of the Transfaculty Research Platform Molecular and Cognitive Neurosciences at the University of Basel has been working on combining psychological and genetic factors and using neuroimaging to get a deeper understanding of memory processes and emotional arousal in humans. More
