- Title: Optical in vivo imaging of pain pathways
- Speaker: Kim Chisholm
- Lab/Affiliation: King's College, UK
- Abstract: Most of our functional understanding of the peripheral nervous system has come from single cell electrophysiological recordings. However the acquisition of such data is labour-intensive and usually ‘low yield’, and crucially some questions are best addressed by studying populations of neurons. With the aim of studying pain pathways in vivo, we have developed an in vivo peripheral imaging platform with which we can study hundreds of neurons simultaneously. Using this technique we were able to characterise the response of large populations of sensory neurons to innocuous and noxious stimuli under normal and inflammatory conditions and have discovered significant differences in thermal processing between the peripheral and central nervous system.
- The ASRC Neuroscience Initiative and the CCNY Neuroscience are proud to introduce the 2018 Neuroscience Seminar Series. Seminars occur every other Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the ASRC’s 5th Floor Seminar Room, starting the 16th of January.
- Each seminar consists of an hour presentation on research relevant to the fields of neurobiology and translational neuroscience. Talks will be given by senior Ph.D. students, postdoctoral and faculty researchers. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend and actively participate in discussions.
- In addition, we are happy to have external scientists give talks. To present your research, suggest external speakers, or for more information about the Neuroscience Seminars please contact Mario Amatruda or Miruna Ghinia-Tegla.
