A signal to synchronize thought with metabolism In a brain structure called the hippocampus, sharp wave-ripples — oscillatory hallmarks of an ‘offline’ mode of cognitive processing — have been found to predict dips in glucose concentrations in the body. News & views by Manfred Hallschmid & Jan Born about our recent paper by Tingley et al.: PDF
Two outstanding students from the lab, Dan Levenstein and David Tingley have become doctors. They were 'PhD-knighted' before leaving to their next destinations, McGill University and Harvard University, respectively. Good luck friends!
An article about Peter Petersen's postdoctoral study in the lab. The outcome of this question is that, today, Peter Petersen, a 37-year-old Danish neuroscientist, is working in the laboratory of world-renowned Professor György Buzsáki at New York University. And funding from the Danish Council for Independent Research and a Lundbeck Foundation postdoc scholarship made it all happen. Read the full story on the Lundbeck Foundation's website.
Metal microdrive and head cap system for silicon probe recovery in freely moving rodent High-yield electrophysiological extracellular recording in freely moving rodents provides a unique window into the temporal dynamics of neural circuits. Recording from unrestrained animals is critical to investigate brain activity during natural behaviors. The use and implantation of high-channel-count silicon probes represent the largest cost and experimental complexity associated with such recordings making a recoverable and reusable system desirable. [...]

The Buzsaki Lab is proud to present a large selection of experimental data available for public access. We publicly share more than a thousand sessions (about 40TB of raw and spike- and LFP-processed data) via our public data repository. The datasets are from freely moving rodents and include sleep-task-sleep sessions (3 to 24 hrs continuous recording sessions) in various brain structures, including metadata. We are happy to assist you to use this data. Our goal [...]
