Showcase Symposium 2020

Showcase Symposium 2020

Join us virtually at our annual Showcase Symposium to learn about research being done at the Allen Institute for Brain Science through innovative, team science approaches.

The 2020 Showcase will feature presentations by scientists from the Allen Institute for Brain Science as well as our Next Generation Leaders, distinguished early-career scientists from institutions across the world.

Allen Institute project talks will cover:

  • Transcriptomics and transgenics: Our work to uncover the genomic diversity of cell types in the mouse brain
  • Patch-seq: Our pipeline to link cell types across transcriptomic, electrophysiological, and morphological modalities
  • Human cell types: Efforts to uncover conserved and divergent cell types across mammalian species, specifically human
  • Electron microscopy: Our imaging and analysis efforts of the connections within a cubic millimeter of mouse neocortex
  • Synaptic physiology: The latest insights from our in vitro electrophysiology pipeline investigating connectivity, synaptic strength, and short-term plasticity of cortical circuits in mouse and human
  • Visual Coding (2-photon): The latest insights from our analysis of in vivo imaging in the mouse visual cortex
  • Visual Coding (Neuropixels): the latest insights from our in vivo electrophysiology pipeline, recording with Neuropixels probes in the mouse visual cortex and related areas
  • Visual Behavior: The latest insights from our active behavior pipeline with in vivo imaging in the mouse visual cortex while mice perform a change detection task
  • Technology & Knowledge Integration: Our latest data releases and the analysis, visualization, and modeling tools to make them accessible

MONDAY, 12/14/2020 - WEDNESDAY, 12/16/2020
9:00am-1:30pm Pacific Time daily

This symposium will be held virtually via Zoom webinar. Registered attendees will be sent the link to join in advance of the meeting.
