DEI Journeys in Computational NeuroscienceThe NIH T32 Computational Neural Engineering Training Program (CNTP) is organizing a DEI panel. The goal of the panel is to discuss different scientific journeys in computational neuroscience and in what respects we as a field can improve DEI. Based on the panelists’ experiences, we encourage participants to start thinking about specific actions they can undertake to increase the accessibility and feeling of belonging for a more diverse group of people.

The panel consists of graduate students Elaida Dimwamwa and Alejandro Lopez, assistant director of postdoctoral services Dr. Karena Nguyen, and associate professor Dr. Samuel Sober.

Sub-Second Dynamics of the Hippocampal Neural CodingDr. Lu Zhang will be talking about methods for performing cycle-by-cycle analysis of theta-gamma coupling in the hippocampus, which he leveraged to investigate hippocampal neural codes during goal-directed behavior. More generally, this approach is a novel way of analyzing neural oscillations, which are thought to shape temporal information processing within neural circuits.
11:30am-12:45pmSuddath Seminar Room
Town HallIn preparation for our grant renewal plans and Advisory Board meeting, we are holding a town hall to get some feedback from everyone in the CNTP community.
