Vici award to Prof.dr. Maarten H.P. Kole

Speed of thought at nanoscale

Billions of nerve cells in the brain rapidly and efficiently process information by an electrical insulation material called myelin. A multidisciplinary research team will examine at nanoscopic detail whether myelin speeds signals like in coaxial cables. The results will deliver fundamental insights into information processing and how demyelinating diseases affect cognition.
