Gude, hallo & hello! The Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) for #Neuroscience #Frankfurt just joined the platform #neuhier 👋 🐘 It is our mission to perform excellent fundamental #brainresearch. Join us on our journey to find out how the many parts of the #brain work together to bring about our #behaviour 🔬 🧠

Flying to San Diego for tomorrow...

Going primarily to support the great students & postdocs in our lab who are presenting their work (and looking for new positions!)

About 25 years ago, Crick and Koch wrote a very thought-provoking paper,

It tries to answer the question, why do feedforward (FF) and feedback (FB) projections have such different properties in terms of terminating in different cortical layers and physiological impact — something that's ignored in many recurrent network models of cortex.

i.o.w.: Why do higher areas talk so differently to lower areas than lower areas talk to higher areas?

@csdashm very cool work - if I would start my career again it would be in EM 4sure

Time for an . Nervous systems — yours, mine, those of mice, fish, and insects and worms — are made up of populations of different kinds of neurons that communicate with one another. Current electron microscopy generates millimeter-scale volumes with the morphology and synaptic connectivity of up to 10^5 neurons. As a scientist at the Allen Institute, I am mapping out the cell types and connectivity rules found in cortex and building computational tools to help others do the same.

@martin_a_vinck @NeuroVenki Definitely... And that's understandable for those who made a lot of effort to build a large flock of followers.

Well let’s do another round of #introduction then! Hi, I’m a Prof at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi), UofG, Scotland, studying human memory. My lab uses a range of tools, including behaviour, EEG/MEG, fMRI and intracranial (single unit + LFP) EEG recordings, trying to understand how the human brain reconstructs past experiences from memory, how it forgets, and how our memories change over time and when we repeatedly remember something.


i'm adam

I used to study the neuroscience of animal behavior in academia

now I work on building a neural interface at Meta Reality Labs

I've also been accused of studying punctuation

@markgbaxter I think this is probably because the most visible PIs that are doing the bOoOoOing - with the most followers - are probably not doing any of the things you have listed here anymore.

- literally do brain surgery
- perform complex analyses of high-dimensional neurophysiology data
- code in MedState notation
- get mice to bury marbles
- bOoOoO mAStOdOn iS sO hARd

This looks great!

Excited to share our new preprint w. Giorgos Spyropoulos, @Mars_Schneider, Thiele Lab. We contrast — in 🐭& 🐵 — the physiological relevance and mechanisms underlying two effects of attention: 1. enhanced inter-areal coherence & 2. firing rates🧵👇1/15

@NeuroVenki @RaphaelGrandin
😀 I think it's rather, $E = \exp(-aN)$...that gives us some nice bound on enthusiasm in $[0,1]$ and there must be some exponential law here, $a \approx 10^-4$. That seems about right, I still see some enthusiasm with people having 10^4 followers.

Proposed model: {number of followers on Tw1tter} = 1 / {enthusiasm for #Mastodon}.


I am researcher working at the interface of artificial intelligence and neuroscience. I really wear two hats.

🎩 I work at Meta Reality Labs, thinking about neuromotor neural interfaces.

🤠 I am also an adjunct professor at Stanford, where I think about neural dynamics and how they give rise to computation and behavior.
