Mitophagy inhibits amyloid-β and tau pathology and reverses cognitive deficits in models of Alzheimer's disease

Collaboration between researchers at NIH-USA, University of Oslo and IMBB-FORTH revealed the critical role of impaired mitophagy in Altzheimer's Disease pathogenesis.

In a collaborative work IMBB and Columbia University researchers revealed how VIP interneurons in the hippocampus regulate spatial learning

In a collaborative work IMBB and Columbia University researchers revealed how VIP interneurons in the hippocampus regulate spatial learning

By combining experiments with models, this study is the first to show that VIP cells underlie the ability of mice to learn the spatial location of a reward.
