TBD



Two-photon Imaging and Manipulation of Cortical Neural Circuits in vivo

Seminar | February 27 | 4-5 p.m. | Soda Hall, HP Auditorium (306)


Weijian Yang, Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Columbia University

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)


One challenge of understanding how the brain works is the complexity of neural circuits. Optical methods provide a route to record and manipulate the neural activity of a small subset of neuron cells with cellular resolution. In this talk, I will discuss our approach to tackling the above challenges through novel three-dimensional (3D) imaging and optical manipulation methods.

One challenge of understanding how the brain works is the complexity of neural circuits. These circuits are composed of hundreds of thousands of neurons that are interconnected in a highly distributed fashion. Optical methods provide a route to record and manipulate the neural activity of a small subset of these cells with cellular resolution. The desire to access a larger volume with higher...   More >
