Program #: 302
Presentation: Sensory Processing in Drosophila: Synapses, Circuits, and Computations
Location: Ballroom 20

Abstract: Many of the basic computations involved in sensory processing are shared across sensory modalities and species. Understanding sensory processing requires identifying these canonical computations, why they might be useful to the organism, and how they are implemented at the level of cells, synapses, and circuits. The lecture will discuss recent work investigating these problems in the fly Drosophila melanogaster, using in vivo whole-cell recordings from genetically-identified neurons.
