UCV Telivision: documentary which rescued Chilean scientific epic Debuts Sunday

It recounts the vital development of neuroscience in the 70's, which took the lab of Montemar in Reñaca.

Laboratory of Physiology cell of Montemar in Reñaca, reached international level in the field of neuroscience through his research on the nerves of the giant squid, led by the late national award of science Mario Luxoro.

The epic behind its creation and contributions in the 1970s onwards was rescued by the documentary "Montemar, labyrinths of memory", to be released by broadcast this Sunday, at 7 pm, in the space "Will to that" of UCV TV.

Investigations there allowed to discover that proteins were behind the nerve impulse. So far only talked about "entities", but did not know its nature. The finding led Chilean Biophysics to gain international recognition.

Of its laboratories were three national prize of natural sciences (the same Luxoro, in 2000; Ramón Latorre, in 2002, and Cecilia Hidalgo, in 2006) and two members of the Academy of Sciences of the USA (Francisco Bezanilla and Ramón Latorre).

The documentary was produced by the Interdisciplinary Center for Neuroscience from the University of Valparaiso, CINV, and performed by Kabbalah productions, under the direction of Gonzalo Argandoña.

It was, also, with funding from the initiative scientific Millennium. Enhttp://youtu.be/tBJsTVyCywEhay a trailer of the documentary.
