Kanold Lab

Principal Investigator: Patrick Kanold
UMD Neuroscience and Cognitive Science

The major focus in the lab is to understand how information about the world is represented/encoded in the brain, the circuits present in the adult and developing brain and their influence of brain development and plasticity. One focus is on probing the response of the brain to sensory stimuli and the other is to record from small sub-circuits and study their responses and circuit behavior in great detail.

Grossman Institute

Principal Investigator: John Maunsell
Neuroscience at University of Chicago

Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior is a new Institute designed to establish a group of scholars working at the intersection of quantitative biology, neuroscience, and the study of social and individual behaviors. The Institute will build upon existing strengths in these fields to address fundamental questions about the biological, social, and environmental factors that shape social behaviors and inter-individual variation in model organisms and humans.

David Kleinfeld Laboratory

Principal Investigator: David Kleinfeld
UCSD Neuroscience; Neurophysics Research

Active sensation: how orofacial behaviors, with emphasis on the vibrissa sensorimotor system, encode a stable world view through actively moving sensors.
Microcirculation in the Brain: the structure and control of cortical blood flow, and variations in that flow, at the level of vascular networks down to that of individual microvessels.
CNiFERs: uses of cell-based sensors of signaling molecules to study volume transmission and neuromodulation in behaving animals.

Laboratory of Neural Circuit Dynamics

Principal Investigator: Fritjof Helmchen
Zurich Brain Research Institute

To study neural circuit function our research is focused on advancing and applying in vivo high-resolution imaging methods, with a particular emphasis on neocortical microcircuitry. The lab’s specific goals are to reveal principles of single-cell and local network computation and to decipher the neural codes governing information processing as well as circuit plasticity.

Kit Lamb Lab

Principal Investigator: Kit S. Lam
UC Davis Center for Neuroscience

The main focus of the Lam Lab lies in discovering revolutionary and innovative methods of disease treatment on a nano-scale and molecular scale. The lab work is most related to molecular medicine, drug discovery, nanoparticle and drug-delivery techniques in cancer and other diseases. Our research is done through the use of cutting edge technologies and established procedures.

Optical Imaging Laboratory

Principal Investigator: Lihong Wang
Washington University Neuroscience Program

Optical Imaging Laboratory develops novel biophotonic tomography for early-cancer detection and functional imaging, using non-ionizing electromagnetic and ultrasonic waves. Research directions include: Photo-acoustic tomography (PAT), Thermo-acoustic tomography (TAT), Ultrasound-modulated (acousto-) optical tomography (UOT), Mueller optical-coherence tomography (M-OCT), Oblique-incidence reflectometry (OIR) and spectroscopy, and Modeling light transport in tissues.

Yoon Lab

Principal Investigator: Euisik Yoon
University of Michigan Neuroscience

SSEL has a very broad research program in all aspects of solid-state devices and technologies, including solid-state physics and theory, integrated photonics and optoelectronics, organic and molecular electronics, optical displays and devices, microwave devices and circuits, semiconductor materials, nanotechnology and nanofabrication, integrated RF, analog, digital, and VLSI circuits, solid-state sensors, actuators, micro electromechanical systems, and integrated microsystem.

Brefczynski-Lewis Lab

Principal Investigator: Julie Brefczynski-Lewis
WVU Center for Neuroscience

Brefczynski-Lewis Lab studies how we perceive people we love and people we don’t like, both famous and political, and how training in compassion can affect those perceptions. The Lab is examining the neural and physiological correlates of the liked and disliked persons and how these change after training in compassion. Grudge forgiveness study: fMRI response to the face of the grudge person, as well as cardio and reactive measures will be tested before and after the intervention

Michael Garwood

Professor
Center for Magnetic Resonance Research

Garwood focus has been on developing cutting-edge MRI and MR spectroscopy techniques and on exploiting them in studies of tissue function, metabolism, and microstructure. An emphasis has been on identifying and validating quantitative metrics to assess normal and disease states non-invasively with imaging, and on applying them to learn about metabolism, hemodynamics, and tissue micro-environment.

Roth Lab

Principal Investigator: Bryan Roth
UNC Neuroscience

Roth Lab studies the structure and function of G-Protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Roth Lab is part of the Department of Pharmacology, a research department in the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Roth lab is the principal contractor for the NIMH Psychoactive Drug Screening Program which includes the PDSP Ki database.
