• Functional properties of habenular neurons are determined by developmental stage and sequential neurogenesis 

      Fore, Stephanie Liesbeth; Acuna Hinrichsen, Francisca Daniela; Mutlu, Aytac Kadir; Bartoszek-Kandler, Ewelina Magdalena; Serneels, Bram; Faturos, Nicholas Guy; Chau, Khac Thanh Phong; Cosacak, Mehmet Ilyas; Diaz Verdugo, Carmen; Palumbo, Fabrizio; Ringers, Christa; Jurisch-Yaksi, Nathalie; Kizil, Caghan; Yaksi, Emre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The developing brain undergoes drastic alterations. Here, we investigated developmental changes in the habenula, a brain region that mediates behavioral flexibility during learning, social interactions, and aversive ...

    • Glia-neuron interactions underlie state transitions to generalized seizures 

      Diaz Verdugo, Carmen; Myren-Svelstad, Sverre; Aydin, Ecem; Van Hoeymissen, Evelien; Deneubourg, Celine; Vanderhaeghe, Silke; Vancraeynest, Julie; Pelgrims, Robbrecht; Casacak, Mehmet Ilyas; Muto, Akira; Kawakami, Koichi; Jurisch-Yaksi, Nathalie; Yaksi, Emre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Brain activity and connectivity alter drastically during epileptic seizures. The brain networks shift from a balanced resting state to a hyperactive and hypersynchronous state. It is, however, less clear which mechanisms ...
    • Motile-Cilia-Mediated Flow Improves Sensitivity and Temporal Resolution of Olfactory Computations 

      Reiten, Ingrid; Uslu, Fazil Emre; Forè, Stèphanie; Pelgrims, Robbrecht; Ringers, Christa; Diaz Verdugo, Carmen; Hoffmann, Maximilian; Lal, Pradeep; Kawakami, Koichi; Pekkan, Kerem; Yaksi, Emre; Jurisch-Yaksi, Nathalie (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Motile cilia are actively beating hair-like structures that cover the surface of multiple epithelia. The flow that ciliary beating generates is utilized for diverse functions and depends on the spatial location and biophysical ...
    • Nanobody-directed targeting of optogenetic tools to study signaling in the primary cilium 

      Hansen, Jan; Kaiser, Fabian; Klausen, Christina; Stüven, Birthe; Chong, Raymond; Bönigk, Wolfgang; Mick, David; Möglich, Andreas; Jurisch-Yaksi, Nathalie; Schmidt, Florian; Wachten, Dagmar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Compartmentalization of cellular signaling forms the molecular basis of cellular behavior. The primary cilium constitutes a subcellular compartment that orchestrates signal transduction independent from the cell body. ...
    • The Role of Cilia on Zebrafish Olfaction & Behaviour 

      Ege, Mert (Master thesis, 2020)
      The cilium is a ubiquitous organelle found across species on a wide range of cell types. It is a highly varied structure able to fulfill a plethora of functions; from motile cilia serving in cell motility and establishing ...
    • The role of motile cilia in the development and physiology of the nervous system 

      Jurisch-Yaksi, Nathalie; Ringers, Christa; Olstad, Emile Willoch (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Motile cilia are miniature, whip-like organelles whose beating generates a directional fluid flow. The flow generated by ciliated epithelia is a subject of great interest, as defective ciliary motility results in severe ...
    • The sensory role of motile cilia 

      Reiten, Ingrid (Master thesis, 2016)
      The structure of all cilia is remarkably well conserved from single-celled organisms to mammals, and they have well-established roles as motile and sensory organelles in various species. The propulsive motility of beating ...
