    Jacques Wadiche PhD

    Jacques Wadiche PhD

    Jacques Wadiche (UAB School of Medicine) talks to us about multivesicular neurotransmitter release (MVR) in the CNS. He takes us through recent work from his lab that gets at PKA-dependent molecular regulation of MVR whereby synaptic release depends on the number of docked vesicles available for release upstream of release probability.

    Timothy J. Petros PhD

    Timothy J. Petros PhD

    Tim Petros (NICHD/NIH) talks about new single cell RNA and epigenetic approaches to understanding the intrinisic programs that determine interneuron diversity. The group discusses how to determine causation vs correlation in identifying candidate mechanisms that regulate interneuron fate decisions, and how historic concepts of cell type (based on morphology, connectivity, physiology etc) map onto transcriptomic data clustering.

Inter Relations ,

Great podcast, audio sometimes poor

The discussions in this podcast contain a lot of interesting info, and the material is not "watered down" for popular consumption. However, the audio sometimes isn't very good, such as when a speaker is too far from the microphone.

Really Great Tool

It requires some knowledge, and sometimes there are sound problems, but it's a unique, useful podcast for learning more about particular neuroscience topics!
