PNI Postdoc Ahmed El Hady's "NeuroBridges" program brings Arab and Israeli neuroscientists together

NeuroBridges is a series of meetings that brings together brain scientists from Israel and the Arab world in hopes of fostering relationships across the political and religious fault lines that divide the Middle East. It grew from the friendship between Ahmed El Hady, an Egyptian neuroscientist at Princeton University, and his Israeli colleague Yonatan Loewenstein of the Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Communication between neurons forms the basis of brain function. Synapses are specialized structures where the release of neurotransmitter filled synaptic vesicles are precisely regulated to encode information. The brain contains many distinct types of synapses to meet the diverse functional demands of neural circuits resulting in clear behavioral outcomes driven by functional output. How then are different synapses defined in order to meet the unique demands of the circuit in which they are embedded?

Social interactions and the brain

Neuroscientist Mala Murthy and a multidisciplinary team at Princeton University want to understand what happens in the brain when animals process information, communicate and socialize.
