"Genetic Dissection of Cortical Neuron Types and Circuits: from Transcriptional Mechanism to Motor Control" by Josh Huang
location:
Pinn Hall 1-17
type:
Seminar
department:
Pharmacology
audience:
Faculty Students
details:
Hosted by Julius Zhu; Co-Sponsored by the Brain Institute, Josh Huang, PhD, is a Professor at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

About Huang's Lab:

Cellular basis of neocortex circuit architecture

Our goal is to understand the cellular basis of fundamental aspects of neural circuit architecture in the neocortex that process information and guide intelligent behavior.

Our overarching hypothesis is that the basic inter-areal and inter-hemisphere cortical processing networks and cortical output channels are mediated by a large set of distinct glutamatergic pyramidal neuron types, and local circuit modules that shape functional neural ensembles are regulated by a diverse set of GABAergic interneuron types.

We use state-of-the-art genetic and viral approaches to systematically discover and target cortical cell types. This provides the intellectual and technical starting point to explore cortical circuits by leveraging and integrating a full range of modern technologies.

As the basic cortical circuit architecture is built through developmental genetic programs, we complement and synergize our studies of the assembly and functional organization of cortical circuits by integrating molecular, developmental genetic, anatomical, physiological approaches.

Recently, we began to integrate our studies in the context of the assembly and function of motor cortex circuits that control volitional forelimb movements.

Go Girls
audience:
Everyone
details:
Go Girls! is a fun dance-based fitness and education program for girls ages 7-21. Our group meets every week to exercise in a fun environment, make new friends, and support each other in wellness goals. We participate in 45 minutes of dance fun followed by a brief wellness discussion. Go Girls! is free for girls ages 7-21 & female family and friends!

Join us at The Battle Building at the University of Virginia Children's Hospital, 1204 West Main St, Charlottesville, VA.

OR, join us at Orange Pediatrics from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. - Orange Medical Center, 661 University Lane, Suite A, Orange, VA

Free parking is provided for Go Girls! participants in the 11th street garage. After 5pm use push button/video phone for building access on the W. Main St. entrance or the 3rd floor parking garage entrance (level C). Please bring your parking garage ticket in and get it validated.

Classes are also held on Mondays from 5:45 - 6:45 p.m. at UVA Primary Care Zion Crossroads - UVA Medical Park Zion Crossroads, 1015 Spring Creek Parkway, Zion Crossroads, VA 22942
