"Non-translational function of ThrRS in regulating STAT3 activity." Chen Lab
Tuesday, September 28, 2021
Speaker: James Bartusek (UC Berkeley)
Multiple lines of evidence support the hypothesis that the cannabinoids, THC and CBD, do more than act on specific GPCRs. Recent evidence in my laboratory points to how cannabinoids drive broad changes in the lipidome with data suggesting that many of the changes are dependent on the enzyme NAPE-PLD.

"The temporal patterning mechanisms in Drosophila medulla neuroblasts." Li Lab
Tuesday, October 5, 2021
Speaker: Stephanie Wehner, QuTech and TU Delft
We found precise responses to orientations in mouse visual cortex in 50,000 neuron recordings. To understand neural recordings from more complex experiments, we developed an embedding algorithm called Rastermap, which qualitatively and quantitatively outperforms t-SNE and UMAP.

Speaker: Lindsay LeBlanc, University of Alberta
As the most numerous non-neuronal cells, astrocytes tile the entire central nervous system and play important roles in regulating neural circuits and behavior. Our recent studies have revealed context-specific responses of astrocytes to various challenges that can be exploited for neurological disorders.

"Regulation of the Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factor ARHGEF3 by PI(3, 5)P2." Chen Lab
"Mapping DNA compaction in interphase chromosomes." Belmont Lab
Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Speaker: Christian Schimpf
Gestational exposure to environmental toxins and socioeconomic stressors are epidemiologically linked to neurodevelopmental disorders with strong male-bias, such as autism. We modeled these prenatal risk factors in mice, by co-exposing pregnant dams to an environmental pollutant and limited-resource stress, which robustly dysregulated the maternal immune system.

The central goal of our lab is to study general principles of how social behavior is regulated in the brain. We study how neural circuits regulate social behavioral decisions within a single brain as well as how emergent inter-brain neural properties arise from social interactions between individuals.
