How the brain controls behavior: Using flies to study motor control at the circuit level – 9/25/2017

Claire McKellar Janelia Research Campus/HHMI Abstract: Investigating how the nervous system controls complex behaviors in simple animals could reveal mechanisms that are fundamental to behavior across species. Cutting-edge genetic tools in flies allow control over multiple neuron types, giving access to a circuit-level view of behavioral control. I am addressing two important questions about behavioral […]

Modeling and quantification of astrocyte activity from calcium imaging data – 10/16/2017

Guoqiang Yu Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Abstract: Recent studies have suggested that astrocytes exert proactive regulatory effects on brain information processing and that they are deeply involved in normal brain development and disease pathology. Recording astrocyte activity is now technically feasible, due to recent advances in modern microscopy and ultrasensitive cell-type specific genetically […]

Cellular and molecular aberrations in Neurodevelopmental disorders associated with autism, intellectual disability and related disorders – 10/30/2017

Jyothi Arikkath University of Nebraska Medical Center Abstract: Autism spectrum disorders represent a heterogeneous group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by deficits in social interaction, communication skills and repetitive behavior. These disorders are often co-morbid with other disorders including intellectual disability. A major challenge in autism and related disorders has been to define cellular and molecular […]

The Future for Advanced Studies: Integrating Team Science and Convergence – 11/6/2017

Jim Olds Schar School and Krasnow Institute George Mason University Abstract: When we think of ‘Advanced Studies’ in the context of science, the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton (IAS) comes to mind as well as the notion of science at the ‘sticky edges’ of the disciplines unbundled from the teaching aspects of the academy. […]

The Challenge of Modeling Cognition for Computational Social Science – 3/20/2017

Bill Kennedy Assistant Professor Center for Social Complexity Computational Social Science Program Abstract: Computational Social Science (CSS) uses models of cognition, mostly human cognition. Zero intelligence agents may be useful for some economic experiments and agents with preferences about their neighbors and moving randomly may demonstrate the emergence of segregation, but better models of individual’s […]
