Lecture of Professor Barak from Tel-Aviv University

Centre of Biosciences, Slovak Academy of Sciences, is pleased to invite you to the lecture: Neuronal ensembles and transcriptional fingerprint of alcohol memories-understanding the molecular mechanisms of alcohol relapse by Professor Segev Barak, Ph.D. (The Stephen Harper Chair of Translational Neuroscience, School of Psychological Sciences, The Sagol School of Neuroscience, Tel Aviv University). Professor Barak is the Head of the School of Psychological Sciences at Tel Aviv University. Professor Barak received his academic degrees from Tel Aviv University, where he graduated in 2003 in Psychology and Communication, and earned his Ph.D. in 2009 in Psychobiology. His research focuses on the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms of alcohol and drug addiction, with emphasis on aberrant learning and memory processes in substance abuse. His lab is using a multidisciplinary approach, which combines sophisticated behavioral analysis of drug and alcohol-related behaviors, molecular biology, biochemistry, and cutting-edge techniques such as viral-mediated gene delivery or gene silencing, and RNA sequencing. Professor Barak won the 2023 “Visit” program grant of the Slovak Academy of Sciences for outstanding scientists from abroad interested to visit our academy to present a scientific talk. When: Wednesday, 11th of October 2023, at 10:00 in the morning Where: “Aula SAV” – the main lecture hall of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Patrónka, Dúbravská cesta 9, Bratislava The talk will be simultaneously broadcasted to the lecture hall of the Research Centre PROMATECH, Watsonova 47/A, Košice To arrange a meeting with Professor Barak, please contact Dr Eliyahu Dremencov, email eliyahu.dremencov@savba.sk
