Location: Weill Auditorium
Akira Sawa, M.D. Director and S&R Innovation Professor, Johns Hopkins Schizophrenia Center Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health Supported by technological advances and collaborative efforts, psychiatric genetics has provided robust genetic findings in the past decade, particularly through genome-wide association studies (GWASs). However, translating these genetic findings into biological mechanisms and new therapies has been enormously...

Rafael Yuste, MD, PhD Neurotechnology Center, Dept., Biological Sciences, Columbia University The design of neural circuits, with large numbers of neurons interconnected in vast networks, strongly suggest that they are specifically build to generate emergent functional properties (1). To explore this hypothesis, we have developed two-photon holographic methods to selective image and manipulate the activity of neuronal populations in 3D in vivo (2). Using them we find that groups of...

Adam G Carter, PhD Associate Professor Center for Neural Science New York University The prefrontal cortex (PFC) controls a variety of cognitive and emotional behaviors and is disrupted is many neuropsychiatric disorders. I will talk about recent findings from my lab on the organization and functional properties of neurons and synapses in the mouse PFC. I will begin with a brief overview of the projection neurons and long-range afferents that link the PFC with other brain regions. I will...

Kathleen J. Millen, Ph.D. Professor of Pediatrics University of Washington Seattle, WA Associate Director, Center for Integrative Brain Research, Seattle Children’s Research Institute Developmental disruptions of the cerebellum are a significant cause of human neurodevelopmental disorders, including Autism and Medulloblastoma. Mouse studies have been valuable to understand their pathogenesis. However, our recent large-scale genetic analysis of human cerebellar structural birth defects...
