Tackling multi-scale, multi-disciplinary aspects in Neuroscience

posted Mar 4, 2019, 12:20 PM by Frances Skinner



Open and critical-minded -  taking on the neuroscience challenges of cellular detail and behaviour via in vitro, in vivo and computational studies.


A great talk and discussions at our Krembil Seminar Series and CPIN Distinguished Neuroscience to bring in the month of March - thank you Ivan!


Expansion of Computational Neuroscientists!

"A doubling of computational neuroscience people..."   
as noted by our February KCN Event speaker, Shreejoy.     


That is, with the addition of another Krembil Research Institute faculty in the Fall (Milad) and the recent multiple faculty hiring at CAMH's KCNI (Krembil Center for Neuroinformatics), we have more than doubled the number of local computational neuroscientists.   

Indeed, we now have a robust core of many "Krembil" computational neuroscientists - exciting times!!

More end of 2018 news... congrats Alexandra!

(Another) travel award for Alexandra - to add to her growing CV!  :)   





SGS conference travel award to Alexandra for her first SfN meeting in San Diego - lovely news and the 'lab coffers' also thank you!

More Toronto time for Scott!

Congratulations Scott on being selected for a Krembil Fellowship Award!!  

No choice now - you'll have to stay in Toronto longer now!  :)  

'Computational' Krembil growth

Exhilarating times as computational research becoming a focus at Krembil - that is, Krembil Computational Neuroscience is an exciting entity at the Krembil Research Institute!   










Within the annual report, see 'research news'   



...and within the Globe and Mail features  https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/adv/advuhnkrembil/  
a 'computational' aspect was included  :)   


Formal congrats to Alex!

Fantastic work Alex - perseverance pays!    

Publication (leading to another one currently in revision) for Alex!   
In press at PLOS ONE (Guet-McCreight and Skinner)   

"Using computational models to predict in vivo synaptic inputs to interneuron specific 3 (IS3) cells of CA1 hippocampus that also allow their recruitment during rhythmic states"

Moving forward with KCN...

Another exciting KCN (and not the potassium cyanide one!) end-of-year celeb at the pub.   Thanks all!


Just keep on winnin'

Another physiology graduate student year luncheon celeb - and a new tradition of Skinner lab winnings!  Cool!

Scary Smiles!

Always fun!  ...and at some point we can hopefully vote for more than one of the amazing pumpkin creations!!?!!

leading to win-win linkages and insights...!  

Topolnik and Skinner lab bioarxiv papers... (due to Alexandre "linkage")  :)   

Upcoming...
