It's an unspoken fact that freely moving lab mice are not really freely moving. We came up with a method to change this. See the preprint: (1/3)

Go read this now — when they rediscover it in mammals in three years and it makes the news you’ll feel so ahead-of-the-curve.

We're tootin' mad and we're not gonna take it anymore! Never imagined this would be my first post on Mastodon:

The entire editorial team at #NeuroImage, including myself, resigned today after #Elsevier refused to negotiate on their absurdly high publishing fees.

My first paper from PhD is out! We discovered that visual feedback neurons can modulate male courtship behavior through Atg8a in flies🪰!! And fly Atg8a is a homolog of mammalian GABARAP!!!

The story of novel visual feedback neurons make sure that males flies court nice n’ steady 😎

Kudos to the awe-inspiring twitterless first-author Yuta, and Nilay (also twitterless now!) & to @XinyueCui , @HaeinKim6🎉🎉

New preprint from the lab in collaboration with the Palmiter lab and Zweifel lab at UW! We developed two novel genetically encoded tools: Neuropeptide release sensor & silencer that works from PRESYNAPTIC TERMINALS in behaving mice. 1/5

Functional gene delivery to and across brain vasculature of systemic AAVs with endothelial-specific tropism in rodents and broad tropism in primates read details (vasculature as biofactory, serotype switching) in thread from the first author @xinhong_chen

Krishna Shenoy (@shenoystanford) has passed -- he was a model scientist, teacher, colleague, and friend who will be missed dearly at #Stanford and beyond. He accomplished more during his short time than most could over several is just a taste of his amazing contribution to neural prosthetics:

PRE-PRINT OUT!! In this collaborative project with @mantri_madhav @KurpiosLab @IwijnDeVlaminck we find out how muscles are formed, assembled and regenerated in the villus to enable fat absorption in the mammalian intestine!

How does the brain organize spontaneous behavior? Our latest (from the amazing @vulcnethologist @GillisDub @neurojaym), reveals a surprising role for dopamine as a teaching signal during free exploration, even without an explicit task or exogenous reward.

@Ankur_pali's data collection efforts shows that the field is not equal at any stage and privileged groups still dominate in all fields of higher education

NEW: In @ScienceMagazine today, our latest peer-reviewed research shows Exxon scientists predicted global warming with shocking skill & accuracy between 1977 & 2003, contradicting the company's decades of climate denial. THREAD.

1/n Happy to finally get out into the world work we initiated at the thick of the pandemic, with postdocs @MosaleSumanth & Yi Liu, culturing CD34+ derived megakaryocyte & platelet fractions from #MPN patient specimens (marrow & platelet/whole blood) and healthy donor controls.


Very excited to represent ctenophores (comb jellies) at the Neuro-Evo conference "A Comparative Approach to Cracking Circuit Function III" @HHMIJanelia in May 2023.

Looking for neural data to analyze? You can find our electrophysiology and imaging data sets (+code/methods) on our lab website! Thousands of neurons, mostly from medial entorhinal cortex and hippocampus, recorded/imaged in behaving mice

Hey #Drosophilists, apparently, there are still slots available for the Crete Workshop on Neural Circuits and Behavior of Drosophila. I was lucky-enough to get to attend that workshop a while back, and it was truly amazing. Heavily recommend applying:

New instance, new #introduction! I'm a PhD student at UMich studying how we make sense of sound. I use patch-clamp #electrophysiology in #brain slices and awake mouse brains, where I investigate everything from receptors on individual #neurons to population level encoding of complex #sounds. I want to make science more diverse, accessible, and impactful for everyone. 👂​🔈​🧠​🔬​
