@AlbouyGenevieve and I are looking for a PhD student to start in Fall 2023 @UUtah to examine the impact of exercise on neural inhibition and learning/memory. In collab with @AdrianaMColetta . More info at . Join us in beautiful Utah!!!

Task-related functional imaging data reveal that the increased rate of learning for the reactivated vs. not-reactivated sequence during retest was paralleled by dynamical changes in hippocampal activity and hippocampo-motor connectivity.

Reactivation-related functional imaging data reveal that reactivation of somatosensory inputs during post-learning quiet rest specifically re-activated motor, parietal, frontal and cerebellar areas that were recruited during initial motor learning.

Behavioral data in a motor sequence learning task show increased learning rates at retest for the reactivated sequence as compared to the not-reactivated sequence.

Pleased to share that our latest results on the behavioral as well as the task- and reactivation-related functional imaging correlates of somatosensory targeted memory reactivation are now published in Cerebral Cortex. A 🧵with a summary below.

I will continue my work in skill acquisition and motor memory in the context of ageing with a special focus on the neural correlates and the role of somatosensory information. Please get in touch if you're interested in discussing my plans!

For those interested in motor sequence learning, (prefrontal) theta-burst (TMS) stimulation, fMRI and/or multivariate analyses: Our latest publication in @SciReports first-authored by @mareikegann is out now!

The second publication from my PhD project is now online in @SciReports ! 🥳 We show that prefrontal stimulation prior to motor sequence learning alters multivoxel patterns in the striatum and the hippocampus. Read more here:

I am very excited to share that my first first-author publication is online! We investigated the effects of theta-burst stimulation prior to initial motor sequence learning on fMRI and MRS of GABA data.
