Development of efficient brain imaging technologies combining a high resolution with a large field of depth is a key step for a better understanding of brain neurocircuits. Functional ultrasound imaging (fUSi) is an innovative modality based on microDoppler ultrasound that can record brain activity at good spatial resolution (up to 10µm pixel size) and in real-time.
Sam Wang — explorer of the brain and wrangler of political polls — made a prediction in 2012 that turned out to be wrong.
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.
A novel intervention to control mosquito-borne diseases: Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology Mala Murthy and Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Carolyn McBride, both of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, will explore ways to interfere with mosquito courtship and mating to reduce mosquito populations.
