Accurate regulation of gene expression is fundamental for the correct development of tissues in all living organisms. In mammals, control of gene expression relies critically on DNA sequences named enhancers, which are often located at very large genomic distances from the gene that they control. How such distant regulatory sequences act specifically on one or ... Read more about "Structure vs. Function: Chromosome architecture and the regulation of gene expression"

Sensory perception in the real world requires proper integration of different modality inputs. The process of multisensory integration is not uniform. It varies from individual to individual and changes at different behavioral states of the animal. What factors affect the multisensory integration? Here I present our recent findings on neural circuit mechanisms for modulation of ... Read more about "BMI Seminar // Modulation of multisensory integration in the posterior parietal cortex"

15th NCCR MARVEL Distinguished Lecture Several physical observables of materials have their theoretical root in geometrical properties of the electronic ground state. To start with, I will outline the modern theory of the insulating state, which addresses all kinds of insulators (band, Mott, Anderson...), discriminating them from metals by means of a very simple geometrical ...

The bacterial flagellar motor is the most complex rotary motor identified in biology. A central transmembrane rotor spins at up to 1300Hz against a ring of ion translocating stators attached to the cell wall, rotating an external helical flagellum to push the bacterium forward. The evolutionally related T3SS used the equivalent of the rotor to ...

It has long been suggested that failure appropriately to inhibit impulses stems from a deficit in prefrontal cortical inhibitory function. Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...
