Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience

logo_achucarro

The University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and Ikerbasque – the Basque Foundation for Science fostered the creation of the Basque Center for Neuroscience research devoted to the figure of Nicolas Achucarro (Bilbao, 1880-1918), the first international recognized Basque neuroscientist.

Achucarro performs work-class research in the study of neuronal-glial biology in normal and pathological brain, which is the base for training students and disseminate the created knowledge to the Society, so well-being of people and sustainable social development is fostered.

Achucarro focuses its research on the brain function in physiology and pathophysiology, with a particular emphasis on:

  • In-depth understanding of the organisation and information processing in neural circuitries;
  • Identification of genetic and molecular backgrounds of neural circuits during development and ageing;
  • Characterisation of genetic, molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases; and
  • Translational research aimed at the development of new strategies for the treatment of brain diseases.

A stellar explosion on the outer reaches of the Universe provides clues about black hole formation

On 24 October 2012 observatories across the world were alerted about a huge stellar explosion, the GRB121024A, which had been located just hours before in the Eridanus constellation by NASA’s Swift satellite. However, only the European Southern Observatory using its Very Large Telescope (VLT) located in the Atacama desert in Chile managed to take accurate […]
