Morgridge Multiscale Imaging Seminar Series
September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Serial block face scanning electron microscopy and reconstructing neural networks
Dr. Kevin L Briggman, Director at the Research Institute Caesar and Director and Scientific Member at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research
Together with Dr. Winfried Denk at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research Dr. Briggman has pioneered the technique of serial block face scanning electron microscopy to reconstruct connectivity of large ensembles of retinal neurons and correlating this to functional properties of these neurons.
