Workshop - HUNDOC 2022 | 27-28 January, 2022 - ELTE, Budapest


Get to know our invited speakers below!

Workshop 1:
         Zsuzsanna Varga PhD. (Professional executive and leadership coach): Mastering Essential Time Management Skills for Academic and Professional Success
The workshop empowers participants with practical strategies to optimize their time effectively. Through interactive communication sessions and expert guidance, attendees will learn to set meaningful goals, prioritize tasks and enhance productivity, equipping them with skills for success in both academic pursuits and professional careers.
Workshop 2:
        Andrea Horváth-Sarródi M.D. (Qualified life-coach, public health medicine specialist): ​​​​​​​What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger? - Life beyond failures 

Why are failures so painful for some and insignificant for others? How do they affect our daily lives and our scientific careers? We are going to search for the answers together and get some inspiration to use our darkest experiences for personal growth.

Prof. György Buzsáki:

Prof. György Buzsáki is one of the most prominent players of today’s neurosciencce. His primary interests is "neural syntax", i.e., how segmentation of neural information is organized by the numerous brain rhythms to support cognitive functions. He identified the cellular-synaptic basis of hippocampal theta, gamma oscillations and sharp waves with associated fast oscillations, their relationship to each other and to behavior and sleep. He was the first to demonstrate the role of GABAergic interneurons in network oscillations. His most influential work, the two-stage model of memory trace consolidation, demonstrates how the neocortex-mediated information during learning transiently modifies hippocampal networks, followed by reactivation and consolidation of these memory traces during sharp wave-ripple patterns of sleep. György Buzsáki's demonstration that in the absence of changing environmental signals, cortical circuits continuously generate self-organized cell assembly sequences is an important link to the neuronal assembly basis of cognitive functions. His experiments demonstrated how skewed distribution of firing rates supports robustness, sensitivity, plasticity, and stability in neuronal networks. He has pioneered numerous technical innovations, including large-scale recording methods using silicon chips and the NeuroGrid, an organic, conformable electrode system used in both animal and patients.

He was the winner of the inaugural Brain Prize in 2011 together with Tamás Freund and Péter Somogyi for their work describing organization of neurons in the hippocampus and the cortex. He is the 2020 recipient of the Ralph Gerard Prize, the highest honor from the Society for Neuroscience, USA. In 2011 he was awarded a Senior Fellowship of the Zukunftskolleg at the University of Konstanz.
