Hello world! Here to (re)build a #neuroscience peer network.
My website: https://albert.rierol.net
Above, my #introduction of interests. Here, who I am, what I do: a neuroscientist at the #MRCLMB and University of Cambridge, UK, studying the neural circuit basis of behavior, originally in #Drosophila but now also in #cephalopods (#pygmysquid #Idiosepius), the lancelet #Amphioxus and other animals. Our main approach: whole brain #connectomics with #vEM (volume electron microscopy) as the basis for computational modeling to guide neuronal activity perturbation and monitoring experiments with #optogenetics and #electrophysiology (#ephys for short).
Once upon a time I founded the #ImageJ -based #TrakEM2 software for image registration and neuronal arbor reconstruction and annotation, which spurred founding the #FijiSc (https://fiji.sc) image processing software, and later the #CATMAID web-based software for #connectomics.
Always open to inquires from prospective students and postdocs, and collaborations.
@mads100tist Isn't it like attending a faraway conference, but one where the room is monitored by a zoom link that anyone can access.
