Giulietta Pinato  (University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia and Istituto Officina dei Materiali – CNR, Trieste, Italy)

My research focuses onto the mechanisms by which neurons integrate electrical and chemical signalling during synaptic plasticity and development. I am particularly interested in the role of Ca2+ channels in shaping and translating electrical activity into biochemical outputs. I am also interested in the development of approaches based on optical manipulation techniques that open new possibilities for the investigation of compartmentalization of neuronal signalling and cell mechanics.
