Experience-dependent enhancement of myelination of the mature cortex may accelerate communication between neurons

Oligodendrocyte generation in the adult CNS provides a means to adapt the properties of circuits to changes in life experience. Recent research by Hopkins Department of Neuroscience and Kavli NDI researchers Hughes EG, Orthmann-Murphy JL et al., demonstrates how oligodendrocytes are effected by sensory experience to modify mature cortical circuits.

Karel Svoboda, PhD, BME & Kavli NDI Special Seminar "Optical and electrophysiological studies of multi-regional neural networks during behavior"

Karel Svoboda is a senior group leader at HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus. Svoboda’s work is at the intersection of neuronal biophysics and cognition. A current focus is to identify core principles underlying information processing in multi-regional neural circuits in the context of planning and execution of voluntary movements. Svoboda is also developing new methods to interrogate neural function in intact brains.
