Chris Kozlowski & Shawn Willett

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 12:00pm
Bryan Research 301
Chris is a graduate student in the Neurobiology Graduate Training Program and a member of the Kay lab. He is interested in cell surface and secreted molecular cues which guide the development of neural circuits in the retina. Additionally, he want to understand the signaling pathways downstream of...

Matthew N. Hill, PhD

Thursday, April 26, 2018 - 12:00pm
Duke North, Room 2002
Learning Objectives: By the end of the session, learners should be able to: 1. Describe the mechanisms by which endocannabinoid signaling in the amygdala modulates anxiety in preclinical models. 2. Explain how endocannabinoid signaling regulates excitability of the amygdala in preclinical models. 3... Read More »

Bryan Research 301
Unravelling the physical limits of information processing is an important goal of non-equilibrium statistical physics. It is motivated by the search for fundamental limits of computation, such as Landauer's bound on the minimal work required to erase one bit of information. Further inspiration... Read More »

Bryan Research 103
In neurons, immediate early gene (IEG) transcription factors are expressed in response to membrane depolarization and regulate gene expression that is essential for morphological, synaptic and circuit plasticity. Because of this, IEG transcription factors are routinely used to identify behaviorally... Read More »

Nanaline Duke 147
Diane Merry, Ph.D. from Thomas Jefferson University

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 (All day)
None
Building on the success of our 2016 Gastronauts Symposium, Gastronauts Singapore aims to spark a global conversation on how food and microbes affect our brain and behavior. And, to envision the future tools needed to unveil gut-brain signaling. Through a joint effort between Duke University School... Read More »

Claire de March & Martin Bohlen

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 12:00pm
Bryan Research 301
Claire is postdoc in the Matsunami lab. Her research is focused on the description of olfaction process at the atomic level. She builds a virtual olfactory system by means of computational and microbiology approaches in order to simulate the neuronal mechanism of the perception of smell. Martin is... Read More »
