  2. Seminar: Eduardo Rosa-Molinar, Towards Disentangling Adult Spinal Neural Circuits

    The Marclab Connectomics Group presents Dr. Eduardo Rosa-Molinar who will deliver a seminar at the Moran Eye Center tomorrow at 4pm on October 8th, 2013 entitled Towards Disentangling Adult Spinal Neural Circuits.  His talk will discuss the neurobiology of ultrafast spinal motor networks and imaging networks with field ion beam milling connectomics. What does this have to do with vision? […]

  3. Building Retinal Connectomes

    There has been quite a bit of discussion of connectomes in the last while with President Obama’s new BRAIN initiative.  It is important to consider some of the requirements of obtaining a true synapse level wiring map in the brain as many are articulating from this initiative.  While there are new technologies that will be […]

  4. Notable Paper: On Cone Bipolar Cell Axonal Synapses In The OFF Inner Plexiform Layer Of The Rabbit Retina

    This paper in the Journal of Comparative Neurology by  J. Scott Lauritzen, James R. Anderson, Bryan W. Jones, Carl B. Watt, Shoeb Mohammed, John V. Hoang and Robert E. Marc is another effort out of the Marc Laboratory For Connectomics that continues to define complete neural circuits to completeness. This paper is another elucidation of data from the first Rabbit Retinal Connectome volume (RC1) that reveals […]

  6. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, 2011

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you from all of us at Webvision.  This image, a Christmas wreath created by Robert E. Marc is composed of 104 rod bipolar cell axonal fields from the world’s first complete connectome with synaptic level resolution.  Each bipolar cell in this field has been annotated from ultrastructural data […]
