    94. Perception And Abstraction With Jerry Chen

    In this episode of Max Planck Florida's Neurotransmissions Podcast, we meet new cohost Dr. Akash Pal, who joins Jeremy in a discussion with Associate Professor of Biology at Boston University, Dr. Jerry Chen. They discuss how the brain can make sense of our complex sensory world through the processes of perception and abstraction and how Dr. Chen's research team uses in vivo imaging of genetically encoded indicators and spatial transcriptomics to understand these processes.

    92. Launching a Neuroplasticity Lab in India with Anant Jain

    92. Launching a Neuroplasticity Lab in India with Anant Jain

    This episode of MPFI's Neurotransmissions Podcast dives into the fascinating world of neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to change and adapt. We're joined by Dr. Anant Jain. Anant joined
    Centre for High Impact Neuroscience and Translational Applications (CHINTA) in Kolkata, India in November 2023. His lab focuses on understanding the molecular signaling underlying homeostatic plasticity that gets activated to compensate for the behaviorally relevant synaptic changes. Moreover, his lab seeks to address how these homeostatic mechanisms get disrupted during neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism. He also tells us about his bold decision to relocate from the USA to India to open his research lab. We explore the challenges and rewards of pursuing scientific discovery in a new environment.

    Whether you're curious about the power of your own brain or fascinated by the world of scientific exploration, this episode of Neurotransmissions has something for you.
