Informal and Student Seminars

The Student Seminar Series meets at noon on select Wednesdays throughout the academic year. Second-year students present papers from recent literature. Each student is expected to present two 30-minute presentations during their second year. Presentations are followed by lively discussion, pizza lunch and a closed session with the student presenter and two faculty.

Genetic dissection of cortical circuits: from cell types to motor control
June 26, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
An enduring challenge in neuroscience is to decipher the cellular basis underlying the functional architecture of the cerebral cortex that processes information and guides intelligent behavior. Despite its immense cellular complexity, certain fundamental aspects of cortical organization (e.g., major inter-areal processing streams, output channels, and local circuit templates) are stereotypic among individuals of the same species and are conserved across mammals. These basic network scaffolds and circuit modules are implemented by a large set of cardinal types of glutamatergic projection...
