BioFrontiers Seminar: Karel Svoboda
Start Date: 9/10/2013Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 9/10/2013End Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description:

Karel Svoboda from HHMI/Janelia Farm Research Campus will be visiting campus Tuesday, September 10, 2013 to speak in the BioFrontiers Seminar Series at 4:00 in the Butcher Auditorium, JSCBB A115, on East Campus.  The title of his talk is “Imaging the dynamics of neural circuits”.  

Abstract:

The cerebral cortex is the largest part of the mammalian brain and plays roles in most learned behaviors. Neocortical circuits are remarkably similar across functional areas and species. Our goal is to understand the principles that organize neocortical circuits and to decipher how they process information and guide behavior.

We focus on the neural circuits that underlie tactile sensation and decision making. During behavior we record from and manipulate specific neuronal populations in mice, to discover causal relationships between neural activity and behavior. I will emphasize recent experiments based on new methods for optical recording and manipulation of neural activity.
