The neural circuits underlying motor planning and short-term memory

Seminar | September 24 | 4-5 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center | Note change in time


Karel Svoboda, Janelia Research Campus, HHMI

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Our goal is to uncover the principles by which mammalian neural circuits perform fundamental computations, from perception to action. Cortex is parcellated into areas with distinct functions, each of which contains complex local circuits. Cortical areas in turn associate into mesoscale circuits with other cortical and subcortical areas via long-range connections. Information is represented by...   More >

Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "Nutrient-Dependent Carbon Metabolism in Pseudomonas species and Implications in Biotechnology"

Seminar | September 26 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Ludmilla Aristilde, Cornell University

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Ludmilla Aristilde joined the faculty in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering in the Fall of 2012. While growing up in Haiti, her interest in environmental issues was sparked by witnessing the impacts of deforestation on the environment and the links between water pollution and health during an epidemic outbreak of cholera. The goal of the Aristilde Group is to contribute to...   More >
