Congratulations to Shivalika Chavan for receiving the UWIN’s Undergraduate Fellowship in Neuroengineering!
UWIN’s Washington Research Foundation Innovation Undergraduate Fellowships in Neuroengineering provide support for undergraduate students whose research relates to both neuroscience and quantitative approaches in math, computer science, or engineering. In her UWIN project, Shivalika proposes to analyze the functional changes that occur as a result of stroke in the sensorimotor cortex of non-human primates (NHPs) and correlate the […]
We had a hard-working and dedicated team for the baking competition. They made a Pyramidal Neuron with NeuN staining of opsin expression limited to soma incorporating a holiday theme. Note the figure caption of the cake! Watch this video for behind the scenes efforts: IMG_1389 […]
Congratulations to Mona Rahimi for being selected for the undergraduate Program in Neural Computation and Engineering!
The undergraduate Program in Neural Computation and Engineering has been designed to bring together students majoring both in biological and mathematical sciences. This two-year program will help students to acquire or deepen the knowledge and skills required to integrate mathematical approaches into a study of the nervous system, and to develop biologically motivated and grounded […]
Four projects from our lab were presented by Devon Griggs, Karam Khateeb, Zach Ip and Julien Bloch at the Society for Neuroscience meeting this year. The abstracts can be found at the links below: J. Bloch, E. Shea-Brown, A. Yazdan-Shahmorad, “A computational model of neural connectivity dynamics in response to optogenetic stimulation of non-human primate […]
Devon Griggs was selected as one of the two winners for the BlackRock Society for Neuroscience (SfN) travel award among more than hundred applicants for his work on Large-scale optogenetic interfaces. He was invited to give a talk at the BlackRock Electrophysiology Lounge on his project. More detailed information on Devon’s work and abstract at […]
