July 9, 2020 at noon EDT Neurophotonics and the Visual System:
Optical approaches to study the assembly and function of retinal circuits - by Dr. Arjun Krishnaswamy is a Sloan Research Fellow and holds the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Canada Research Chair in Neural Circuits, Assembly and Function at McGill University where he is an Assistant Professor of Physiology. His work uses advanced optogenetics and imaging approaches to study the precise wiring of the mammalian retina.
Microbial trogocytosis and the complement system regulate axonal pruning in vivo - by Dr. Tony Lim is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Ed Ruthazer at the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University. He uses in vivo imaging to study the roles of microglia in axonal pruning during circuit development.
