The research group led by Prof. Dr. Gaia Tavosanis, focuses on the development and adult plasticity of the nervous system. The group investigates the cellular mechanism underlying the differentiation of neurons and the capacity of remodelling of the adult nervous system at the cellular and circuit level. For this, they combine multiple approaches ranging from molecular biology and classical genetics in Drosophila to high-resolution in vivo microscopy, functional imaging and behavioural paradigms. We are currently recruiting at the postdoctoral level in the following fields of research: Differentiation of neuronal dendrites in the Drosophila larva We implement high resolution imaging to investigate how neuronal dendrites differentiate in vivo and how they can be modified upon changes of sensory stimuli in the adult nervous system. We combine this microscopy approach with cutting-edge Drosophila genetics and molecular biology. Using these approaches, we have recently demonstrated that distinct molecular regulation of the cytoskeleton underlies the diversity of dendrite morphologies observed among neuronal types. (Zheng et al., JCS 2024 https://doi.org/10.1242/jcs.261512; Stürner et al., Cell rep 2022 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.celrep.2022.110746; Tavosanis, Curr Op Neurobio 2021 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.conb.2021.05.001; Ferreira Castro et al., ELife 2020, https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.60920). Projects in the following areas of research: a. Cellular mechanisms of dendrite branch stabilization b. Structure/ function analysis of Drosophila larva dendrites Mushroom body calyx The Drosophila Mushroom body calyx represents an exemplary circuit for the understanding of fundamental processing steps in the nervous system, such as the formation of sparse representations of sensory information. Combining available electron microscopy reconstructions of the neurons involved in the circuit, with classical genetics, developmental analysis, high-end microscopy, time-lapse imaging, functional imaging and behavioral paradigms, we address the developmental logic of how this circuit is assembled, its functional properties and its plasticity in the adult animal (see Baltruschat et al., 2021 Cell rep doi: 10.1016/j.celrep.2021.108871 ; Prisco et al., 2021 ELife  https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.74172).

Anatomical and functional basis of the formation of sparse codes of olfactory representation in the mushroom body calyx. c. Functional and structural plasticity of the adult mushroom body calycal circuit.

The main methods comprise: Evaluation of oxidation and corrosion mechanisms in different binder phases in cemented carbides using experimental methods such as optical emission spectroscopy, micrographs with image analysis of porosity, electron backscatter diffraction, EDX mapping and XRD analyses The degradation of mechanical properties is locally mapped by nanoindentation and macroscopically determined by bending and fatigue tests The influence of the binder-WC interfaces on corrosion is investigated using different WC grain sizes An evaluation of corrosion and oxidation experiments after different exposure times allows conclusions to be drawn about the corrosion kinetics and the extrapolation of the service life by means of regression analysis Corrosion-resistant new binders and their process windows are simulated in Thermo-Calc New binders are used to produce modified cemented carbides (cooperation with Durit) which will be tested at University Aveiro Über unsRWTH is a certified family-friendly University. We support our employees in maintaining a good work-life balance with a wide range of health, advising, and prevention services, for example university sports. Employees who are covered by collective bargaining agreements and civil servants have access to an extensive range of further training courses and the opportunity to purchase a job ticket.
