A Virtual Laboratory for Image-based Neuroscience Discovery: Collaborative Research and Science Education in the Era of “big data”
Abstract: Dr. Guttmann’s Center for Neurological Imaging (CNI) in the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital developed one of the first large scale MS repositories integrating MRI images with clinical and biological data, as well as an image analysis workflow manager tightly linked to this repository. These technologies have successfully been used over ...

BMI Seminar // Coding global tactile scenes in the barrel cortex of rodents: electrophysiological, imaging and modeling approaches
The tactile sensations mediated by the whisker-to-barrel cortex system allow rodents to efficiently detect and discriminate objects and surfaces. The temporal structure of individual whisker deflections and the temporal correlation between deflections occurring on several whiskers simultaneously vary for different tactile substrates. We studied how this distributed input is coded along the afferent pathway from ...
