Informal and Student Seminars

The Student Seminar Series meets at noon on select Wednesdays throughout the academic year. In the fall semester, second-year students present papers from recent literature. In the spring semester, graduate students and postdocs are invited to present their own findings or works in progress to the Neurobiology community. Presentations are followed by a lively discussion, pizza lunch and a closed session where presenters receive feedback from the faculty directors and from students enrolled in the course.

Upcoming Seminars

Reverse engineering neural control of movement in Hydra
October 22, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Adrienne Fairhall, Co-Directorof Univ. of Washington's Computational Neuroscience Center, presents "Reverse engineering neural control of movement in Hydra." Hosted by Eva Aimable Naumann, eva.naumann@duke.edu . Abstract: Hydra is a fascinating model organism for neuroscience. It is transparent; new genetic lines allow one to image activity in both neurons and muscle cells; it exhibits rich behavior, and it continually rebuilds itself. Hydra's fairly simply physical structure as a two-layered fluid-filled hydrostat and the accessibility of information about neural and muscle activity opens...
