Marcelo did his undergraduate in Psychology at the University of Minho, Portugal. During his masters, he used EEG techniques to study perception of voices in human subjects. He moved to Lisbon for his PhD at IMM, where he studied the encoding of temporal information in the hippocampal formation of rodents. He used in vivo tetrode recordings and chemogenetic tools to record and manipulate neural activity in the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex of rats performing a timing task. He is currently a research assistant at ICVS where he uses silicon probes to study electrophysiological markers of Alzheimer’s disease along the septo-temporal axis of the hippocampus.


Lipids in Alzheimer’s disease

Here we propose to study how brain regional lipid composition contributes to susceptibility to neurodegenerative disorders. We use different approaches to tackle this question, from mass…
