Invited speaker

Csaba Varga studied neurobiology at the University of Szeged, Hungary. During his undergraduate and graduate years he visited laboratories in Göttingen and Leipzig where he gained a strong neuroanatomical background. During his first postdoctoral years he studied microcircuits in the neocortex under the guidance of Gábor Tamás. Later he joined the Soltész lab at UCI, where he developed a technique with the help of which he started to investigate how different cell types fire during behaviorally relevant brain oscillations in awake mice. In 2014 he has been awarded by the Hungarian Brain Research Program and started his laboratory at the recently established Szentágothai Research Center at the University of Pécs, Hungary.

Title of Csaba's presentation: Inhibition in the entorhinal cortex
