Final Report Summary - HOST SHIFT (Olfactory correlation of rapid host plant shift in the European corn borer)
Insects possess a highly-developed sense of smell and live, as far as they are concerned, in a world dominated by odors. The goal of this research project was to study the neuroethological basis and evolution of olfaction in insects, using European corn borer (ECB) as a model...

Final Report Summary - SYM-BIOTICS (Dual exploitation of natural plant strategies in agriculture and public health: enhancing nitrogen-fixation and surmounting microbial infections)
The unexpected discovery of 800 plant peptides produced in Sinorhizobium meliloti -Medicago truncatula symbiosis prompted us to investigate their function in symbiosis and explore their novel activities beyond symbiosis. In symbiosis, the peptides provoke an irreversible...

Final Report Summary - STORM (Development and Application of Super-resolution Localization Microscopy)
Traditional fluorescence microscopes are not able to resolve structures finer than 250 nm due to the diffraction of the applied light. Consequently, in biological systems molecular-level biochemical processes could earlier be investigated only by using the SEM, TEM, AFM, etc...

Final Report Summary - INTERIMPACT (Impact of identified interneurons on cellular network mechanisms in the human and rodent neocortex)
The group initially focused on genetic fingerprinting of electrophysiologically and anatomically identified neurogliaform cells in the rat cerebral cortex. They developed a method capable of determining the full molecular portrait of neurogliaform cells with oligocellular...

Periodic Report Summary 2 - JAXPERTISE (Joint action expertise: Behavioral, cognitive, and neural mechanisms for joint action learning)
The JAXPERTISE Project aims to understand how people learn to perform highly coordinated actions with each other, such as playing a piano duet or dancing a tango. It is notoriously difficult to achieve a high degree of coordination with others when acting together in real time...

Final Report Summary - GRANARIP (Structure-property characteristics of graphene materials with controlled nanoscale rippling)
The scientific objective of the GraNaRip project was to elaborate and characterize corrugated graphene, as well as to investigate the electronic and gas sensing properties of graphene/nanoparticle heterostructures. Comprehensive summary of the work performed during the project...

Final Report Summary - SERRACO (Modulation of cortical activity by median raphe neuronal assemblies with identified behavioural effects)
The median raphe region (MRR) of the mammalian brainstem modulates the forebrain circuitries (including the septum and the hippocampus) by serotonin and/or glutamate transmission. We used a variety of techniques including optogenetics, in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology...

Final Report Summary - MOLECMAP (Quantitative Molecular Map of the Neuronal Surface)
The major aim of the project 'MolecMap' was to provide a quantitative molecular map of the neuronal surface. A key feature of nerve cells when compared to other cells of our body is that they contain a large repertoire of ion conducting channels; their presence in the plasma...

Final Report Summary - ABC (Targeting Multidrug Resistant Cancer)
The overall aim of the project was to develop compounds that specifically target multidrug resistant (MDR) cancer. The central tenet is that ABCB1/Pgp, a universally accepted biomarker of drug resistance, should be considered as a molecular target of multidrug-resistant cancer...
