Our research will focus on leveraging prior knowledge about the anatomy of neurons for automated image analysis.
The lab will focus on automated reconstruction and identification of neurons in EM and light microscopic image data of the fly brain, where the goal is to exploit prior knowledge about global neuron shapes. This will enable biologists to find specific neurons of interest efficiently in huge EM volumes. Furthermore, it will be exciting to map circuits known from EM onto functional acquisitions to be able to observe known circuits in action. Therefore, the respective specific cell bodies have to be identified in functional imaging data.
