2019, July 22nd – A survey into the early neural representations of odorants. The entry-level olfactory inputs and the further processed olfactory bulb outputs appear to represent different aspects of smell beyond the physical-chemical properties of molecules sampled. Jointly with the Koulakov group.
2019, May 1st – Generous support from the BRAIN Initiative to understand the logic of olfactory bulb projections across the brain. Functional in vivo imaging of odorant responses and MAPseq in search of meaningful patterns. A joint enterprise with the Koulakov and Zador groups.
2018, November 28th – Glomeruli receive mixed odorant receptor input in the absence of the olfactory marker protein OMP. A project spanning a decade-long journey.
2017, January 3rd – Gonzalo’s sparse L2 source reconstruction model is on the Arxiv. Finds known sources in presence of strong unknowns.
2016, December 8th – Pedro’s defense. Congrats Dr. Garcia da Silva!
2016, October 14th – Priyanka’s defense. Congrats Dr. Gupta!
2016, September 29th – Priyanka’s bioRxiv primer on robust, fast and flexible odor machines.
2016, August 18th – Justus, Pedro, Ian, Ashlan and Tony’s revolution of sequencing the brain connectome. Neuroscience in a new era.
2016, July 25th – Matt’s defense. Congrats Dr. Koh!
2016, May 11th – Kai, Pedro and Bo on active and passive defense.
2016, March 20th – Arka’s defense. Congrats Dr. Bandyopadhyay!
2015, July 1st – Arka and Fred’s saga on the long projecting, yet short axon cells, DAT+ for namesake, is in print. More below on how they go about implementing concentration gain control, and not only.
Science Daily – Revised view of brain circuit reveals gain control mechanisms in the olfactory bulb
2014, Sept 30th – yet again the BRAIN project.
CSHL press release – 4 CSHL scientists will contribute to President’s BRAIN Initiative under new NIH grants
2014, August 18th – The BRAIN Initiative brings relief to the lab.
CSHL Press Release NSF Early Concept grants for Neuroscience.
2010, Oct 19th – Interest in olfaction rises in the media when it sounds fancy. In real, a surprising and binding report on how sisters mitral cells are yet so different and increase the information broadband from the bulb to the cortex. Congrats Ashesh!!!
