"Estimation of Current and Future Physiological States in Insular Cortex" by Mark Andermann, PhD
Sponsored by department(s) : Pharmacology
Event Date : November 12, 2020
Start Time : 4:00 pm
Time Duration: 60 minutes
Location : via Zoom
Description: Hosted by Stephan Abbott, Mark Andermann, PhD, is an Associate Professor, Medicine, BIDMC, Harvard University, Boston, MA
The goal of the Andermann lab is to understand the role of corticolimbic areas in guiding attention to, and imagery, learning and memory of, motivationally-salient external and interoceptive stimuli. To understand these neural phenomena at the level of local microcircuitry, we developed a paradigm for chronic two-photon calcium imaging of visual responses in identified neurons and axonal boutons in thalamus, cortex and amygdala of mice performing visual discrimination tasks or running on a trackball.
