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.

Technical Workshop: Controls in NeuroscienceThe T32 program in Computational Neural Engineering invite all interest to attend this virtual workshop on Applying Control Theory in Neuroscience led by Dr. Garrett Stanley and graduate student Adriano Borsa. Advances in actuating neural circuits with optogenetics and observing neural circuits with modern imaging/electrophysiology allows for the possibility of closing the loop with real-time feedback, but bridging control theory with neuroscience has nevertheless been underappreciated. The workshop will consist of an interactive Google Colab notebook, exploring heuristic and modern control feedback techniques as applied to a simulated neural system. The goal of this workshop is to expose folks in the neuroscience community to control theory, as well as inspire discussion for how controls can be used to solve problems in neuroscience.
