Christine Hawkes, PhD North Carolina State University; Professor, Department of Plant and Microbial Biology "Soil respiration responses to climate change are constrained by climate history"
We study circuit-level mechanisms in sensorimotor pathways for forelimb motor control. I’ll present results from optogenetic and electrophysiological studies of cellular connections and cortical correlates relating to manual dexterity.
Professor, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Neuroscience and Neurology. Dr. Geffen has been directing the Laboratory for Auditory Coding at the University of Pennsylvania since 2010.

The IGB is hosting a virtual Q&A with Ian Cheney, one of the two directors of the documentary "Picture A Scientist."
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.

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.

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.

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.
Sapp Family Provostial Professor, The Catherine Holman Johnson Director of Stanford Bio-X and Professor of Biology and of Neurobiology
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.
"TBA." Director, Genetics and Epigenetics Program.
Department of Pathology. Regulation of hepatic development, metabolism, and paths towards cancer.
This seminar will present data that increasing activity of ACh inputs to the hippocampus selectively induces stress-dependent behaviors, including increased susceptibility to social stress. Our working hypothesis-ACh signaling in hippocampus may be relevant to negative encoding bias, that is, increased focus on negative events, experienced by individuals with depression.
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Neuroscience. The focus of the Olsen lab is to better understand the role of astrocytes in normal and abnormal central nervous system function.
