Emerging Tools for Acquisition and Interpretation of Whole-Brain Functional Data
A follow-up to the first conference held at Janelia in 2015, this meeting focuses on emerging optical techniques enabling near-simultaneous acquisition of neuronal activity at the whole-brain level with single-cell resolution in a variety of model organisms. These techniques will advance our understanding of how the information underlying behavior is dynamically represented and processed by neuronal networks at the whole-brain level. Analysis of the big data sets generated from microscopic imaging requires a combination of machine learning, statistics, mathematical modeling and a robust IT infrastructure. This meeting gathers experts and pioneers in these fields to identify synergies and new opportunities and to discuss challenges in moving forward.
