About the Neuroscience Colloquium Series
This special Oxyopia seminar is in collaboration with the Neuroscience Colloquium at Indiana University, an interdisciplinary series that highlights the vast amount of new research in the field of neuroscience and provides additional training to graduate students in the use and development of measurement techniques and instrumentation. Undergraduates seeking information and involvement with research projects also are welcome to attend.
About this speaker
Michael Crair, Ph.D., is a professor of neuroscience as well as a professor of ophthalmology and visual science at Yale, where he maintains an active research program developing advanced imaging techniques to study neural circuit development.
Dr. Crair has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of neural activity in the developing brain. For example, he demonstrated that early spontaneous neuronal activity is an essential part of normal brain development. Currently, he is exploring the mechanisms by which this activity is generated, and how it shapes brain circuit development.
