CNCM Seminar: Peyman Golshani, MD, PhD

September 28 @ 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Free

New open-source tools for imaging neuronal activity in freely behaving animals

Join the UCI Center for Neural Circuit Mapping in a hybrid conference featuring Dr. Peyman Golshani, Professor of Neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA.

Abstract:

Dr. Golshani obtained his MD/PhD from UC Irvine and UC Davis where he trained under the mentorship of Dr. Edward G. Jones on the development of corticothalamic synapse. He then completed his Neurology residency at UCLA and obtained postdoctoral training with Dr. Felix Schweizer and Dr. Guoping Fan where he studied the role of DNA methylation in development of cortical circuits. He then became faculty and in collaboration with Dr. Portera-Cailliau and Dr. Stelios Smirnakis studied the developmental desynchronization of internally generated activity in the cerebral cortex. His independent laboratory now investigates how cortical microcircuits in the awake behaving animal encode sensory input and how disorders such as autism and developmental epilepsies disrupt functional cortical connectivity.
