Spain

The CSIC (Spanish National Research Council) is the largest and leading public research institution in Spain and the third in Europe due to the quality and quantity of its scientific production. It plays an essential role within the Spanish System for Science, Technology and Innovation and contributes to reinforce Spain’s position at the international level.

CSIC’s main aim is to develop and promote scientific studies to contribute to foster scientific and technological progress. CSIC's mission includes: 1) multidisciplinary scientific and technical research; 2) scientific and technical advice; 3) transferring results to the private sector; 4) contributing to the creation of technology-driven companies; 5) training specialised personnel; 6) management of infrastructure and large facilities; 7) promoting scientific culture. The CSIC is multidisciplinary, carrying out research in almost all fields of knowledge. Its activities encompass basic research all the way through to technological development.

The CSIC is present in all the autonomous regions through their centres across Spain. It comprises 120 centres spread across Spain, and is also present in Brussels and Rome. It is formed by employees with a wide range of academic qualifications and professional categories. The CSIC employs 11,000 people, of which 3.000 are researchers. In total, they represent the 6% of Spain’s R&D workforce and generate approximately the 20% of the country’s production. Likewise, the CSIC collaborates with other juridical entities such as consortia and trading companies.

Senses arise in the brain before birth

Sensory maps in the mammalian brain take shape as the embryo develops, scientists in Spain have shown. This finding upends the idea that physical experiences are needed for neurons to pattern themselves into circuits representative of touch, sight, smell and other sensory systems.

A team from the Spanish National Research Council–affiliated Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante genetically disrupted the structured pattern of spontaneous calcium waves in the thalamus of embryonic mice. Consequently, the mice failed to respond normally to stimuli applied to their whiskers.

The findings suggest that functional sensory maps are sketched out in utero well before actual sensory inputs begin to fill in the details. This could help explain why some people are born with synaesthesia, a condition marked by unusual links between sensory experiences.
