Congratulations to Julien Bloch for receiving the Big Data for Genomics and Neuroscience Grant!

Julien Bloch received the Big Data for Genomics and Neuroscience Grant. In his proposal Julien plans to investigate optogenetic and electrical stimulation-induced cortical network reorganization. By understanding how a network interacts with stimulation to produce the network-wide connectivity change, we will gain insight into neuroplasticity dynamics at the in-vivo neural population level and progress towards stimulation based neurotherapies. Julien proposes to leverage datasets of large-scale recording and stimulation of the sensorimotor area in non-human primates, in parallel with computer simulation of large-scale neural dynamics, to investigate how neural stimulation drives connectivity change across a network.
