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.

Atilla Botond Kelemen joined the group in 2021 as a BSc student in Biology at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Budapest. He is currently interested in Bayesian decoding of task states from in vivo Ca2+ imaging data.


Márton Kis joined the group in 2018 as an MSc student. Márton received his BSc from physics at the Eötvös Lóránd University, Budapest. He is interested in applying recently developped deep learning techniques to understand high-dimensional neural population activity recordings. He is currently an Artificial Intelligence Engineer at Bosch Magyarország.

Lajos Vágó is a mathematician and was a postdoc in the group between 2016 and 2017. He worked on the representational capacity of the grid cell system. He is currently a Quantitative Developer at Morgan Stanley.
