On Tuesday 23 March 2021, S.E. Loyola Arroyo will defend his PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Functional and Anatomical study of the Inferior Olive: From slice physiology to in vivo recordings ’.

In this thesis, I address fundamental aspects of the inferior olive nucleus (IO) that have previously not been studied in detail. These include how the anatomy of IO neurons define IO network organization, how the IO integrates multiple inputs, how such integration affects motor learning ,and how IO activity changes during sleep.

Due to corona, the PhD defences do not take place publicly in the usual way in the Senate Hall or in the Professor Andries Querido Room. The candidates will defend their dissertation either in a small group or online.
