Balázs B Ujfalussy is a group leader at the Institute of Experimental Medicine (KOKI) in Budapest. Previously he studied biology for his MSc and did a neurobiology PhD at the Eötvös Lóránd University, Budapest in the computational neuroscience group of Péter Érdi. Then he moved to the UK where he was a postdoc with Máté Lengyel at the CBL, Dept. of Engineering, University of Cambridge and then with Tiago Branco at the MRC LMB. After returning to Hungary he started working in the Laboratory of Neuronal Signalling, KOKI with Judit Makara as an independent postdoc. He is interested the biophysical basis of information processing in single neurons, dendritic nonlinearities in particular and in the role of the hippocampus in navigation and planning.
Bence Fogel joined the group in 2020 as a BSc student in Biology at the Eötvös Lóránd University, Budapest. He studies the relative contribution of voltage dependent and synaptic currents in shaping neuronal activity under in vivo-like conditions.
