Biology Department Seminar-Anthony Leonardo

Biology Department Seminar featuring Anthony Leonardo, Director, Janelia Experimental Technology

 

Since 2008 I have been a Group Leader at Janelia.  Our work here focuses on understanding the principles underlying neural information processing -- in short, how neurons collectively solve interesting behavioral problems.  These questions are currently pursued in the salamander and the dragonfly, where we are attempting to develop mechanistic descriptions of prey capture in terms of the underlying neural circuit dynamics.
