Learning what’s dangerous is costly, but social animals have a way of lowering the price

For social animals, such as humans, being able to recognize the presence of a threat in the behavior of others could literally be a life-saver. Yet, animals do not instinctively know that when a group member displays freezing – one of the three universal defense responses – it means trouble. Now, new findings by the Behavioural Neuroscience Lab demonstrate how animals acquire this ability and identify the neural circuitry crucial for implementing it.

Champalimaud Investigator receives Award to explore how the immune and nervous systems control lung infection

Henrique Veiga-Fernandes is the first Portuguese investigator selected for a CZI (Chan Zuckerberg Initiative) grant. The project, selected for the Single-Cell Analysis of Inflammation grant, comprises a team of three prominent scientists that will join forces to unravel neuro-immune interactions and their potential therapeutic contributions to pulmonary infection and inflammation.
