Oliver Barnstedt

Postgraduate Student

Oliver studied Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology as an undergraduate at Jacobs University Bremen in Germany before coming to Oxford. Here, he obtained an MSc in Neuroscience in 2013, and has since been pursuing a DPhil in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics in the lab of Scott Waddell.

His research interests are focused on the use of two-photon calcium imaging to investigate neural circuits underlying learning and memory.

Oliver was a fellow of Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes, and is currently supported by scholarships from the Medical Research Council, University College Oxford, as well as Goodger and Schorstein.

The Memory Molecule

The Memory Molecule

Olfactory learning in Drosophila relies on presynaptic plasticity of mushroom body-intrinsic Kenyon cells whose neurotransmitter has up to now remained unknown. We present evidence that demonstrates a role for acetylcholine as the Kenyon cell neurotransmitter.
