Neuroengineering/BE Seminar: “Photovoltaic Restoration of Sight in Age-related Macular Degeneration” (Daniel Palanker)

Presented by The Center for Neuroengineering and Therapeutics Presents and The Bioengineering Department. Check email for zoom link or Everett Prince at Retinal degenerative diseases lead to blindness due to loss of the “image capturing” photoreceptors, while neurons in the “image-processing” inner retinal layers are relatively well preserved. Information can be reintroduced into the […]

BE Seminar: “Studying the Neural basis of Natural Spatial, Social and Acoustic Behaviors – in Freely Behaving and Flying Bats” (Michael Yartsev, UC Berkeley)

Glandt Forum, Singh Center for Nanotechnology 3205 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States

This is a hybrid seminar that will take place in Glandt Forum (Singh Center) and via Zoom (check email for link and passcode). Our lab seeks to understand the neural basis of complex spatial, acoustic and social behaviors in mammals. To do so, we take a neuroethological approach that leverages the specialization of the bat […]
