    EP. 95 Visual Neuroscience Objects & Scenes With Tony Movshon

    EP. 95 Visual Neuroscience Objects & Scenes With Tony Movshon

    In this episode, Dr. Tony Movshon returns to the podcast to chat with hosts Jeremy and Akash about his work in understanding visual pathways and the differences between 'constructionist' and 'reductionist' approaches in neuroscience.

    Dr. Movshon is a university professor researching vision and visual development at NYU School of Medicine. He has made contributions to the understanding of the brain mechanisms that represent the form and motion of objects, and the way these mechanisms contribute to perceptual judgments and visually guided movement.

    94. Perception And Abstraction With Jerry Chen

    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.

Amazing

This podcast is amazing. The only problem is that sometimes the sound is not clear enough. I am a fan of Max Planck society as a whole and I hope I can work there as a veterinarian who does research in neuroscience.

Great for neuro nerds

Really enjoy having a local resource like Max Planck helping to make interesting things in neuroscience more accessible

Excellent and funny

I love this podcast! I’m a psychologist who loves learning more about cutting edge brain science. Guests are super interesting and make me laugh out loud.
