Granted projects

Sonata 16 /NSC

PROJECT LEADER: Andrzej Foik

This project is designed to investigate the Basal Forebrain's role in visual information processing. The BF is the primary source of cholinergic inputs into the visual cortex, and therefore the main source of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter. We propose that cholinergic modulation coming from BF will significantly impact single neuronal responses of the primary visual cortex (V1) in Long-Evans rats.

DAINA 2 /NSC

PROJECT LEADER: Maciej Wojtkowski

To follow the progression and treatment of degenerative diseases, new in vivo imaging modalities are required. Building on the state of the art technology and recent advances in physical optics, we propose to develop new methods for repeatable and safe imaging to assess morphological and functional aspects of individual cells within human body. We will focus on methods derivative to Optical Coherence Tomography OCT, which is the most promising method for providing non-invasive, high-speed volumetric structural, and functional imaging at cellular-level.

Sonata Bis 9 /NSC

PROJECT LEADER: Andrzej Foik

Development of a method to restore visual function using a modified rabies virus Eye, and particularly the retina, is a “window into the brain”. It reveals sufficient information aboutpatient condition, and for humans, it is the main organ responsible for world perception. The retinais a very fragile and complex structure, located on the back of […]
