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  
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!

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

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


More "Krembil Math" aka "Welcome Milad"

Computational Neurobiology is expanded at the Krembil.  
Welcome to Milad!! 

Time for more theoretical, mathematical and computational discussions to help us figure out the workings of the brain in our quest to 'find a cure' (quotation taken from you know where!) at the Krembil!   :)

See the following link for more info on Milad.
