SQE Lecturer Series: "Thinking Outside the Chromosome: Interrogating Epigenetic Mechanisms in Non-Canonical Chromatin Species" with Yael David, PhD

Chicago - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Simpson Querrey Institute for Epigenetics presents:

Yael David, PhD

Associate Member, Chemical Biology Program

"Thinking Outside the Chromosome: Interrogating Epigenetic Mechanisms in Non-Canonical Chromatin Species"

Abstract:

Epigenetic regulation governs DNA-templated processes, playing a pivotal role in determining cell phenotype and fate. Disruption of epigenetic cascades is implicated in various disease states, notably cancer. Many of these pathological conditions involve significant chromosomal rearrangements, leading to the formation of non-canonical chromatin structures present in primary nuclei or enclosed in spatially distinct micronuclei. Recently, we adopted a mechanistic approach to explore the properties of these unique non-chromosomal structures, unveiling substantial epigenetic contributions to their regulation. 

Our investigations revealed that micronuclei undergo altered epigenetic landscapes upon departure from the nucleus. Importantly, they retain these epigenetic 'scars' upon reintegrating into primary nuclei, contributing to epigenetic reprogramming and heterogeneity in cancer. Shifting our focus, we delved into the covalently closed circular DNA (cccDNA) minichromosome of the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). This minichromosome, formed from viral DNA and human histones following infection, undergoes chromatinization, driving the expression of the key viral oncogene, HBx, and facilitating viral infection. Our elucidation of this novel mechanism has allowed us to disrupt infection by inhibiting histone remodeling, presenting a potential first-in-class therapy for HBV.

In my seminar, I will elaborate on how these exciting findings underscore the critical role of chromatin in biomedical events. Additionally, I will discuss how a fundamental understanding of these processes can pave the way for identifying new therapeutic avenues.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: "Synaptic Signaling in Memory and Chronic Pain-Related Disorders"

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Kimberley Tolias, Ph.D.

Professor
Department of Neuroscience
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Baylor College of Medicine

Abstract:

The human brain contains billions of neurons interconnected via trillion of synaptic connections into functional networks that give rise to perception, cognition, and behavior. The organization of neurons into complex circuits involves a series of highly regulated steps, culminating in the formation and refinement of synapses, which mediate information flow and storage in the brain. Synapses continue to remodel throughout life, which is important for processes like learning and memory. Failure to properly develop or maintain neural circuits underlies a wide array of disorders, including intellectual disability, autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s Disease.Moreover, maladaptive circuit remodeling can result in conditions like chronic pain, depression, and cognitive decline. The long-term goal of research in my laboratory is to unravel the intricate molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern neural circuit formation and plasticity in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) and to harness this knowledge to develop noveltherapeutic interventions for CNS disorders. In this talk, I will present our recent efforts to characterize the role of the actin cytoskeletal regulator Tiam1 in controlling synaptic remodeling important for both learning and memory and chronic pain-related disorders.

Writing Like a Teacher: Expanding the Audience for Your Writing [New Date]

Evanston - 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Join us in person to hear award-winning author and former professor James M. Lang, PhD, explain how to draw upon our hard-won wisdom as teachers to create effective learning experiences for a wider and more public audience. Hosted by the Office of the Provost.

University faculty have hard-earned knowledge and expertise that could benefit learners outside their courses and their campuses. Faculty who would like to write for more public audiences can draw upon their pedagogical knowledge to create effective learning experiences for readers. This approach draws lessons from Jim Lang’s work as a book series acquisition editor, his multiple books aimed at general academic audiences, and his dozens of published magazine and newspaper essays. In this workshop, participants will learn about the power of questions to drive writing projects, the use of evidence in public writing, and the importance of developing a unique writing voice.

M-I Dept. Seminar/ Self-Nonself Discrimination Conferred by Regulatory T Cell Specificity

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title:  Self-Nonself Discrimination  Conferred by Regulatory T Cell Specificity

Speaker: Peter Savage, PhD, Professor, Dept. of Pathology, The University of Chicago

Topic: 

During infection, in which both self- and pathogen-derived antigens are presented in an inflammatory environment permissive for T cell activation, how does the immune system selectively control self-reactive T cells while simultaneously enabling robust effector T cell responses to pathogen-derived antigens? In this study, we examine the hypothesis the regulatory T cells enforce this self-nonself discrimination by selectively constraining conventional T cells of shared specificity for the same self-peptide/MHC antigen.

James Lang's Policy to Pedagogy: Evaluating Artificial Intelligence for Teachers and Learners

Evanston - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

James Lang's Policy to Pedagogy: Evaluating Artificial Intelligence for Teachers and Learners

Building upon arguments first presented in his book Distracted, Jim Lang will present a framework for guiding the use of artificial intelligence in the design of college courses and assessments. Our thinking about new technological tools often starts with making decisions about policies, which dominated the first conversations about ChatGPT in higher education. But while policy thinking should not have the first or last word in course or assessment design, it can spur reflection about our goals both as teachers and learners. This interactive lecture will provide opportunities for faculty members to review their assessment strategies, and develop new ones, in light of the recommended framework.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Andrew Tan

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Andrew Tan, PhD
Research Scientist; Deputy Director, Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research

Biography
My research interests focus on spinal cord injury (SCI) pathology, particularly mechanisms underlying neuropathic pain and spastic movement disorders. My long-term goal is to identify and assess novel targets and strategies that can help restore normal function after SCI. My hope is that our efforts will eventually lead to more effective and safe clinical therapies.

As the Principal Investigator (PI) of US Federal awards and privately funded grants, I have applied my expertise toward managing the execution of a broad range of projects, and have developed strong collaborations with domestic and international teams. As an Associate Director of the Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research at the West Haven VA Medical Center, I currently supervise a wonderful team of students, postdocs, and junior faculty in our SCI/D research program. Our published research has utilized in vitro and in vivo approaches, including a combination of anatomical analyses, behavioral assessment, viral-based gene therapy, and whole-animal electrophysiological techniques.


Over the past decade, my team has laid the groundwork demonstrating that maladaptive dendritic spine remodeling within nociceptive or motor reflex circuits underlies SCI-induced hyperexcitability disorders, i.e., neuropathic pain and spasticity. This body of work has also demonstrated for the first time that the Rac1-PAK1 pathway is a key mechanism involved in maintaining chronic pain and spinal motor reflex dysfunction. A core implication of these insights is that dendritic spine profiles may serve as a morphological correlate for sensory-motor hyperexcitability disorders, and could be used to predict therapeutic-drug response. Recently, we pioneered the use of long-term, in vivo two-photon imaging assays that we now use to investigate the relationship between dendritic spine dynamics in the spinal dorsal horn and neuropathic pain.

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Seminar Title: 

Inhibition of Kaposi’s Sarcoma Associated Herpesvirus microRNAs in Primary Effusion Lymphoma

Speaker: Jesus Ortega, Graduate Student, Driskill Graduate Program

Topic:

Kaposi's Sarcoma Herpesvirus (KSHV) causes several human cancers, including the non-Hodgkin’s body cavity primary effusion lymphoma (PEL). In PEL, KSHV remains latent, expressing few proteins and several viral microRNAs (miRNAs). To date, specific challenges with KSHV biology have precluded effective viral miRNA loss-of-function studies. By exploring new mechanistic insights into miRNA turnover, I achieve robust miRNA inhibition, highlighting the essentiality of a viral miRNA mimic of miR-155 in sustaining viability and proliferation of patient-derived PEL.

James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control: "Executing, Reinforcing and Refining Actions" with Rui Costa, DVM, PhD

Chicago - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The Department of Neuroscience Presents:

The James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control: "Executing, Reinforcing and Refining Actions"

Rui Costa, DVM, PhD
President and CEO
Allen Institute
Professor of Neuroscience
Columbia University

Abstract
The ability of animals to build individual repertoires based on the consequences of their actions is fascinating, and essential for survival. Understanding this process, i.e., how actions are learned through trial and feedback, requires mechanistic insight into how self-paced actions are initiated, how they can be selected/initiated again, and how feedback can refine their execution and organization. We use behavioral, genetic, electrophysiological, and optical approaches to gain this mechanistic insight. The combination of these approaches allowed us to uncover that dopaminergic neurons are transiently active before self-paced movement initiation. This activity is not action-specific and modulates both the probability of initiation and the vigor of future movements, but does not affect ongoing movement. Dopamine is supposed to have opposite effects on downstream striatal direct and indirect pathways. Contrary to what is classically postulated, we found that both striatal direct and indirect pathways are active during movement initiation. The activity in both pathways is action-specific and has complementary but different roles in movement, which are enabled by specific basal ganglia output circuits. Input from cortex seems to be critical to organize striatal activity, and cortico-striatal plasticity is necessary to select, reinforce and refine the specific neural and behavioral patterns that lead to desirable outcomes. These data invite new models on the mechanisms underlying self-paced movement initiation, and motor dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease. They also suggest that cortico-basal ganglia circuits play a generic role in learning to reinforce and refine task-relevant neural activity and behavioral patterns.

About Dr. Costa
Rui Costa is a neuroscientist and the current president and CEO of the Allen Institute. His laboratory develops and uses genetic, electrophysiological, optical, and behavioral approaches to investigate how the brain adaptively controls behavior and internal organ function. He did his PhD studies with Dr. Alcino Silva at UCLA and postdoctoral work with Dr. Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University. He then became section chief at the National Institutes of Health, an investigator of the Champalimaud Neuroscience Program, and a professor at Columbia University. He was co-director of Champalimaud Research and director/CEO of the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University. He received several awards, such as the Young Investigator Award from SFN, the Ariëns Kappers Medal from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Mina Bissell Award, and was knighted Commander of the Order of Sant'Iago da Espada by the President of Portugal. He is an elected member of EMBO, and the National Academy of Medicine.

About the James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control
In 2020, the late James C. Houk, PhD, and his wife Antoinette made a bequest to establish the Dr. James Houk Graduate Fellowship in Neuroscience. Their gift provides funding to outstanding graduate students studying neurophysiology at Northwestern and supports the annual James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control, presented by a renowned motor neuroscientist.

About James C. Houk, PhD
Dr. James C. Houk originally studied electrical engineering before receiving his PhD in physiology at Harvard University. As an assistant professor at Harvard, he studied Golgi tendon organs, muscle spindles and developed control models of muscle activation through neuronal circuits in the spinal cord.

Later, as an associate professor at Johns Hopkins Medical School, Houk began work on the central nervous system in behaving monkeys, work he continued at Northwestern University, after being recruited in 1978 as chair of the Department of Physiology (now Neuroscience). During this time, Houk also built a world-renowned systems neuroscience group within the department.

In 2001, after 23 years, Houk stepped down as chair to concentrate on multimodal approaches to studying how the nonlinear dynamics of microscopic modules in the brain give rise to its unique computational properties. He became particularly interested in the interplay between the basal ganglia, motor cortex and cerebellum.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Kara Marshall

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Kara Marshall, Ph.D - Assistant Professor, PI

The Marshall lab studies interoception, which is the nervous system's representation of sensations from within the body. We focus on mechanical force sensation, which is a critical part of many systems - the gastrointestinal system churns, squeezes and stretches in the process of digestion, and the sensation of the bladder filling is critical to know when it's time to go. Detecting these cues is critical for driving basic daily functions in our lives. Moreover, when we become acutely aware of internal sensations, it is often in the context of pain. The molecular and cellular identities of mechanosensors that govern these important physiological processes, in both health and disease, remain poorly understood.

Beyond governing the basic functions of our body, interoception can have effects on our cognition and mood. The connections between internal sensations and cognition are not well understood. We use a variety of techniques to begin to parse the mechanistic underpinnings of these exciting mysteries at the molecular, cellular, and behavioral levels. This includes using genetic models, in vivo imaging, physiology, neuronal tracing, opto-and chemo-genetics, and custom behavioral measurements. Overall, investigations in the Marshall lab define how the brain senses the body.

Pharmacology Seminar Series | Teru Nakagawa, PhD

Chicago - 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

"Structure and function of AMPA receptor auxiliary subunit complexes"

Abstract: Functional modulation of excitatory synaptic transmission in mammalian brain is fundamental to information processing across neurons, while dysfunctions of synapses accompany various neurological and psychiatric disorders. AMPA-type ionotropic glutamate receptors (AMPA-Rs) are ligand-gated ion channels activated by neurotransmitter L-glutamate and mediate most of excitatory synaptic transmission in the central synapses. Our current focus is to uncover fundamental mechanisms that underly the gating and trafficking of AMPA-Rs, taking approaches in structural biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and electrophysiology. These efforts may lead to producing knowledge relevant to designing new therapeutics that could control synaptic activities under disease conditions, which include Alzheimer’s disease, intellectual disability, seizure, excitotoxicity, ALS, memory loss, addiction, schizophrenia, and autism. In this seminar I will present recent progress we made in our laboratory on the molecular structures of AMPA-R in complex with auxiliary subunits and their ion permeation mechanisms.

Topic:

Although vaccines and antibiotics have been historically successful in combating bacterial infections, limited vaccine coverage and the rise of antibiotic resistance emphasize the need to design new targeted treatment strategies. In an attempt to answer this call, we are developing platform technology that combines data from approaches including single cell, bulk and dualRNA-Seq, Tn-Seq, and CRISPRi into multidimensional bacterial profiles, that can be computationally mined to aid in developing drug and/or immune-enhancing approaches.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Christine Constantinople

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Christine Constantinople, Ph.D., New York University

RESEARCH OVERVIEW
The Constantinople lab is interested in the mechanisms by which neural circuits compute and represent cognitive variables subserving decision-making. Our ultimate goal is to answer a major question in systems neuroscience: How do the task-relevant responses of neurons in decision-related circuits arise from the synaptic inputs those neurons receive. We are particularly interested in value-based decision-making behaviors, and our long-term vision will be to understand the synaptic and circuit basis of neural computations guiding economic decision-making. We use high-throughput training of rats to combine sophisticated behavioral paradigms with large-scale electrophysiology, imaging, and circuit perturbation techniques including pharmacology and optogenetics. In parallel, we also use in vivo whole-cell recordings and paired recording experiments to characterize the connectivity and circuit logic of brain regions under study in the lab. Rich behavioral paradigms amenable to detailed behavioral modeling and detailed circuit experiments are at the core of all projects in the lab.

"Emerging imaging technologies to study subcellular architecture, dynamics, and functions"

Abstract:

Powerful new ways to image the internal structures and complex dynamics of cells are revolutionizing cell biology and bio-medical research. In this talk, I will focus on how emerging fluorescent technologies are increasing spatio-temporal resolution dramatically, permitting simultaneous multispectral imaging of multiple cellular components. In addition, results will be discussed from whole cell milling using Focused Ion Beam Electron Microscopy (FIB-SEM), which reconstructs the entire cell volume at 4 voxel resolution. Using these tools, it is now possible to begin constructing a “organelle interactome”, describing the interrelationships of different subcellular organelles as they carry out critical functions. The same tools are also revealing new properties of organelles, including the roles of cytoskeletal elements like vimentin in controlling their organization and dynamism.

Bio

i am a weill neurohub term assistant professor in the department of psychology at the university of washington, seattle.

i completed my ph.d. training in neuroscience at ucsf and my postdoctoral tenure in the Murthy lab at the princeton neuroscience institute. my research interests span systems neuroscience, cognitive psychology, evolutionary biology, and genetics. currently, i am excited to delve deeper into the neurobiology of multitasking as a way to study how nervous systems generate and constrain different behaviors.

as a researcher, i am keen to practice science within alternate value systems that promote equity, safety, creativity, and imagination.

i acknowledge that the ahmed lab will operate on stolen Coast Salish land, on the ancestral lands of the Suquamish, Tulalip, and Muckleshoot Tribes. this acknowledgement is one way of resisting the erasure of indigenous histories and knowledge, and foregrounds our efforts to work differently in relationship to ourselves, each other, and the spaces wherein we work and live.

i am thankful to the BRAINS fellowship, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, Weill NeuroHub, the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain, and the UW for supporting our research.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: "Synaptic Signaling in Memory and Chronic Pain-Related Disorders"

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Kimberley Tolias, Ph.D.

Professor
Department of Neuroscience
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Baylor College of Medicine

Abstract:

The human brain contains billions of neurons interconnected via trillion of synaptic connections into functional networks that give rise to perception, cognition, and behavior. The organization of neurons into complex circuits involves a series of highly regulated steps, culminating in the formation and refinement of synapses, which mediate information flow and storage in the brain. Synapses continue to remodel throughout life, which is important for processes like learning and memory. Failure to properly develop or maintain neural circuits underlies a wide array of disorders, including intellectual disability, autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s Disease.Moreover, maladaptive circuit remodeling can result in conditions like chronic pain, depression, and cognitive decline. The long-term goal of research in my laboratory is to unravel the intricate molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern neural circuit formation and plasticity in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) and to harness this knowledge to develop noveltherapeutic interventions for CNS disorders. In this talk, I will present our recent efforts to characterize the role of the actin cytoskeletal regulator Tiam1 in controlling synaptic remodeling important for both learning and memory and chronic pain-related disorders.

Writing Like a Teacher: Expanding the Audience for Your Writing [New Date]

Evanston - 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Join us in person to hear award-winning author and former professor James M. Lang, PhD, explain how to draw upon our hard-won wisdom as teachers to create effective learning experiences for a wider and more public audience. Hosted by the Office of the Provost.

University faculty have hard-earned knowledge and expertise that could benefit learners outside their courses and their campuses. Faculty who would like to write for more public audiences can draw upon their pedagogical knowledge to create effective learning experiences for readers. This approach draws lessons from Jim Lang’s work as a book series acquisition editor, his multiple books aimed at general academic audiences, and his dozens of published magazine and newspaper essays. In this workshop, participants will learn about the power of questions to drive writing projects, the use of evidence in public writing, and the importance of developing a unique writing voice.

M-I Dept. Seminar/ Self-Nonself Discrimination Conferred by Regulatory T Cell Specificity

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title:  Self-Nonself Discrimination  Conferred by Regulatory T Cell Specificity

Speaker: Peter Savage, PhD, Professor, Dept. of Pathology, The University of Chicago

Topic: 

During infection, in which both self- and pathogen-derived antigens are presented in an inflammatory environment permissive for T cell activation, how does the immune system selectively control self-reactive T cells while simultaneously enabling robust effector T cell responses to pathogen-derived antigens? In this study, we examine the hypothesis the regulatory T cells enforce this self-nonself discrimination by selectively constraining conventional T cells of shared specificity for the same self-peptide/MHC antigen.

James Lang's Policy to Pedagogy: Evaluating Artificial Intelligence for Teachers and Learners

Evanston - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

James Lang's Policy to Pedagogy: Evaluating Artificial Intelligence for Teachers and Learners

Building upon arguments first presented in his book Distracted, Jim Lang will present a framework for guiding the use of artificial intelligence in the design of college courses and assessments. Our thinking about new technological tools often starts with making decisions about policies, which dominated the first conversations about ChatGPT in higher education. But while policy thinking should not have the first or last word in course or assessment design, it can spur reflection about our goals both as teachers and learners. This interactive lecture will provide opportunities for faculty members to review their assessment strategies, and develop new ones, in light of the recommended framework.

If you have any questions, contact Veronica Womack (veronica.womack@northwestern.edu)

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Andrew Tan

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Andrew Tan, PhD
Research Scientist; Deputy Director, Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research

Biography
My research interests focus on spinal cord injury (SCI) pathology, particularly mechanisms underlying neuropathic pain and spastic movement disorders. My long-term goal is to identify and assess novel targets and strategies that can help restore normal function after SCI. My hope is that our efforts will eventually lead to more effective and safe clinical therapies.

As the Principal Investigator (PI) of US Federal awards and privately funded grants, I have applied my expertise toward managing the execution of a broad range of projects, and have developed strong collaborations with domestic and international teams. As an Associate Director of the Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research at the West Haven VA Medical Center, I currently supervise a wonderful team of students, postdocs, and junior faculty in our SCI/D research program. Our published research has utilized in vitro and in vivo approaches, including a combination of anatomical analyses, behavioral assessment, viral-based gene therapy, and whole-animal electrophysiological techniques.


Over the past decade, my team has laid the groundwork demonstrating that maladaptive dendritic spine remodeling within nociceptive or motor reflex circuits underlies SCI-induced hyperexcitability disorders, i.e., neuropathic pain and spasticity. This body of work has also demonstrated for the first time that the Rac1-PAK1 pathway is a key mechanism involved in maintaining chronic pain and spinal motor reflex dysfunction. A core implication of these insights is that dendritic spine profiles may serve as a morphological correlate for sensory-motor hyperexcitability disorders, and could be used to predict therapeutic-drug response. Recently, we pioneered the use of long-term, in vivo two-photon imaging assays that we now use to investigate the relationship between dendritic spine dynamics in the spinal dorsal horn and neuropathic pain.

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Seminar Title: 

Inhibition of Kaposi’s Sarcoma Associated Herpesvirus microRNAs in Primary Effusion Lymphoma

Speaker: Jesus Ortega, Graduate Student, Driskill Graduate Program

Topic:

Kaposi's Sarcoma Herpesvirus (KSHV) causes several human cancers, including the non-Hodgkin’s body cavity primary effusion lymphoma (PEL). In PEL, KSHV remains latent, expressing few proteins and several viral microRNAs (miRNAs). To date, specific challenges with KSHV biology have precluded effective viral miRNA loss-of-function studies. By exploring new mechanistic insights into miRNA turnover, I achieve robust miRNA inhibition, highlighting the essentiality of a viral miRNA mimic of miR-155 in sustaining viability and proliferation of patient-derived PEL.

James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control: "Executing, Reinforcing and Refining Actions" with Rui Costa, DVM, PhD

Chicago - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The Department of Neuroscience Presents:

The James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control: "Executing, Reinforcing and Refining Actions"

Rui Costa, DVM, PhD
President and CEO
Allen Institute
Professor of Neuroscience
Columbia University

Abstract
The ability of animals to build individual repertoires based on the consequences of their actions is fascinating, and essential for survival. Understanding this process, i.e., how actions are learned through trial and feedback, requires mechanistic insight into how self-paced actions are initiated, how they can be selected/initiated again, and how feedback can refine their execution and organization. We use behavioral, genetic, electrophysiological, and optical approaches to gain this mechanistic insight. The combination of these approaches allowed us to uncover that dopaminergic neurons are transiently active before self-paced movement initiation. This activity is not action-specific and modulates both the probability of initiation and the vigor of future movements, but does not affect ongoing movement. Dopamine is supposed to have opposite effects on downstream striatal direct and indirect pathways. Contrary to what is classically postulated, we found that both striatal direct and indirect pathways are active during movement initiation. The activity in both pathways is action-specific and has complementary but different roles in movement, which are enabled by specific basal ganglia output circuits. Input from cortex seems to be critical to organize striatal activity, and cortico-striatal plasticity is necessary to select, reinforce and refine the specific neural and behavioral patterns that lead to desirable outcomes. These data invite new models on the mechanisms underlying self-paced movement initiation, and motor dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease. They also suggest that cortico-basal ganglia circuits play a generic role in learning to reinforce and refine task-relevant neural activity and behavioral patterns.

About Dr. Costa
Rui Costa is a neuroscientist and the current president and CEO of the Allen Institute. His laboratory develops and uses genetic, electrophysiological, optical, and behavioral approaches to investigate how the brain adaptively controls behavior and internal organ function. He did his PhD studies with Dr. Alcino Silva at UCLA and postdoctoral work with Dr. Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University. He then became section chief at the National Institutes of Health, an investigator of the Champalimaud Neuroscience Program, and a professor at Columbia University. He was co-director of Champalimaud Research and director/CEO of the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University. He received several awards, such as the Young Investigator Award from SFN, the Ariëns Kappers Medal from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Mina Bissell Award, and was knighted Commander of the Order of Sant'Iago da Espada by the President of Portugal. He is an elected member of EMBO, and the National Academy of Medicine.

About the James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control
In 2020, the late James C. Houk, PhD, and his wife Antoinette made a bequest to establish the Dr. James Houk Graduate Fellowship in Neuroscience. Their gift provides funding to outstanding graduate students studying neurophysiology at Northwestern and supports the annual James C. Houk Lecture in Motor Control, presented by a renowned motor neuroscientist.

About James C. Houk, PhD
Dr. James C. Houk originally studied electrical engineering before receiving his PhD in physiology at Harvard University. As an assistant professor at Harvard, he studied Golgi tendon organs, muscle spindles and developed control models of muscle activation through neuronal circuits in the spinal cord.

Later, as an associate professor at Johns Hopkins Medical School, Houk began work on the central nervous system in behaving monkeys, work he continued at Northwestern University, after being recruited in 1978 as chair of the Department of Physiology (now Neuroscience). During this time, Houk also built a world-renowned systems neuroscience group within the department.

In 2001, after 23 years, Houk stepped down as chair to concentrate on multimodal approaches to studying how the nonlinear dynamics of microscopic modules in the brain give rise to its unique computational properties. He became particularly interested in the interplay between the basal ganglia, motor cortex and cerebellum.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Kara Marshall

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Kara Marshall, Ph.D - Assistant Professor, PI

The Marshall lab studies interoception, which is the nervous system's representation of sensations from within the body. We focus on mechanical force sensation, which is a critical part of many systems - the gastrointestinal system churns, squeezes and stretches in the process of digestion, and the sensation of the bladder filling is critical to know when it's time to go. Detecting these cues is critical for driving basic daily functions in our lives. Moreover, when we become acutely aware of internal sensations, it is often in the context of pain. The molecular and cellular identities of mechanosensors that govern these important physiological processes, in both health and disease, remain poorly understood.

Beyond governing the basic functions of our body, interoception can have effects on our cognition and mood. The connections between internal sensations and cognition are not well understood. We use a variety of techniques to begin to parse the mechanistic underpinnings of these exciting mysteries at the molecular, cellular, and behavioral levels. This includes using genetic models, in vivo imaging, physiology, neuronal tracing, opto-and chemo-genetics, and custom behavioral measurements. Overall, investigations in the Marshall lab define how the brain senses the body.

Pharmacology Seminar Series | Teru Nakagawa, PhD

Chicago - 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

"Structure and function of AMPA receptor auxiliary subunit complexes"

Abstract: Functional modulation of excitatory synaptic transmission in mammalian brain is fundamental to information processing across neurons, while dysfunctions of synapses accompany various neurological and psychiatric disorders. AMPA-type ionotropic glutamate receptors (AMPA-Rs) are ligand-gated ion channels activated by neurotransmitter L-glutamate and mediate most of excitatory synaptic transmission in the central synapses. Our current focus is to uncover fundamental mechanisms that underly the gating and trafficking of AMPA-Rs, taking approaches in structural biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and electrophysiology. These efforts may lead to producing knowledge relevant to designing new therapeutics that could control synaptic activities under disease conditions, which include Alzheimer’s disease, intellectual disability, seizure, excitotoxicity, ALS, memory loss, addiction, schizophrenia, and autism. In this seminar I will present recent progress we made in our laboratory on the molecular structures of AMPA-R in complex with auxiliary subunits and their ion permeation mechanisms.

Neuroscience Seminar Series: Dr. Christine Constantinople

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Christine Constantinople, Ph.D., New York University

RESEARCH OVERVIEW
The Constantinople lab is interested in the mechanisms by which neural circuits compute and represent cognitive variables subserving decision-making. Our ultimate goal is to answer a major question in systems neuroscience: How do the task-relevant responses of neurons in decision-related circuits arise from the synaptic inputs those neurons receive. We are particularly interested in value-based decision-making behaviors, and our long-term vision will be to understand the synaptic and circuit basis of neural computations guiding economic decision-making. We use high-throughput training of rats to combine sophisticated behavioral paradigms with large-scale electrophysiology, imaging, and circuit perturbation techniques including pharmacology and optogenetics. In parallel, we also use in vivo whole-cell recordings and paired recording experiments to characterize the connectivity and circuit logic of brain regions under study in the lab. Rich behavioral paradigms amenable to detailed behavioral modeling and detailed circuit experiments are at the core of all projects in the lab.

"Emerging imaging technologies to study subcellular architecture, dynamics, and functions"

Abstract:

Powerful new ways to image the internal structures and complex dynamics of cells are revolutionizing cell biology and bio-medical research. In this talk, I will focus on how emerging fluorescent technologies are increasing spatio-temporal resolution dramatically, permitting simultaneous multispectral imaging of multiple cellular components. In addition, results will be discussed from whole cell milling using Focused Ion Beam Electron Microscopy (FIB-SEM), which reconstructs the entire cell volume at 4 voxel resolution. Using these tools, it is now possible to begin constructing a “organelle interactome”, describing the interrelationships of different subcellular organelles as they carry out critical functions. The same tools are also revealing new properties of organelles, including the roles of cytoskeletal elements like vimentin in controlling their organization and dynamism.

Bio

i am a weill neurohub term assistant professor in the department of psychology at the university of washington, seattle.

i completed my ph.d. training in neuroscience at ucsf and my postdoctoral tenure in the Murthy lab at the princeton neuroscience institute. my research interests span systems neuroscience, cognitive psychology, evolutionary biology, and genetics. currently, i am excited to delve deeper into the neurobiology of multitasking as a way to study how nervous systems generate and constrain different behaviors.

as a researcher, i am keen to practice science within alternate value systems that promote equity, safety, creativity, and imagination.

i acknowledge that the ahmed lab will operate on stolen Coast Salish land, on the ancestral lands of the Suquamish, Tulalip, and Muckleshoot Tribes. this acknowledgement is one way of resisting the erasure of indigenous histories and knowledge, and foregrounds our efforts to work differently in relationship to ourselves, each other, and the spaces wherein we work and live.

i am thankful to the BRAINS fellowship, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, Weill NeuroHub, the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain, and the UW for supporting our research.
