Today our guest is Professor Dwight Bergles, a professor in the Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University. In this episode we talk about glia and their role in neuronal circuits, following data wherever it takes you, and a dream of swimming with sperm whales.
Today, our guest is Kristin Branson, a Group Leader at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus. We’ll be speaking with her about searching for the right topic to study, tracking animal behavior using machine learning, and thinking about problems globally.
Today, our guest is Professor Bernardo Sabatini, the Alice and Rodman W. Moorhead III Professor of Neurobiology at Harvard University. In this episode, we will talk about overcoming technological barriers, scientific bloodlines, and when the music industry meets science.

Our guest is in this episode is Takaki Komiyama, a professor at the University of California, San Diego in the Department of Neurosciences and in the Neurobiology Section of the Center for Neural Circuits and Behavior.
Small blast from the past: this episode was recorded in October, 2014, but never broadcast; we wanted to bring this back from our archives and present it to you now, because it’s a great interview!
In this interview, we talk about the anatomy of the sense of smell, baseball (Royals fans, sorry this was 2014...but we're in 2015 now), and neural ensembles in motor cortex during learning. Please enjoy!
Today, our guest is Mark George, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), where he is director of the Brain Stimulation Laboratory. We’ll be speaking with him about using TMS to probe causality in the human brain, how vagal nerve stimulation could be working to treat depression, and a little bit of entemology /beekeeping.
While on the subject of decision making...
Today, our guest is Anne Churchland, Associate Professor at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. We’ll be speaking with her about finding science by teaching kids math, the neural basis of multisensory decision making, and the benefits of lab blogging.
Excited to present the first episode of the season!! In this episode, our guest is Jie Shen, a Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. We speak with her about her education in China, figuring out your true love for science (even if you're not yet sure!), and the role of presenilins in Alzheimer’s disease.
Stick with us next week for an interview on decision making with Anne Churchland, Asst. Professor at CSHL.
Today, our guest is Carl Hart, associate professor of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University and author of the 2013 book, High Price: A neuroscientist’s Journey of Self Discovery That Challenges Everything you Know about drugs and society. We’ll be speaking with him about surprising discoveries about psychoactive drug use, and how neuroscience can better inform policy
Today, our guest is Elly Nedivi, Professor of Neurobiology at MIT. In this episode, we talk about structural plasticity of inhibition, screening for plasticity genes, and running buddies at Stanford.
ln this week's episode, we talk about the hippocampus and memories, delayed gratification, and physics vs. neuroscience.
Dr. Loren Frank is Professor of Physiology at UCSF.
