Latest information from the world of Quantitative Phase Imaging

24 May 20222022Company RepresentativeEMBL Heidelberg

This presentation is important for everyone who would like to understand what QPI can do for her/his research. We would love to hear what problems you are facing when analyzing cells and how could we address them. Are you struggling with phototoxicity? Have you ever wondered if there is a quantitative label-free imaging method? Are your cells too sensitive to disturbances or staining? Have you ever wondered how many picograms your cells weigh? Are you not satisfied with the segmentation results and cell tracker performance? This presentation is important for everyone who would like to understand what QPI can do for her/his research.

Socially induced brain plasticity and behavioral reprogramming in ants

1 July 20222022External Faculty SpeakerEMBL Rome

Social insects are an ideal system to study the role of gene regulation in brain development and function because individuals from different castes (workers and queens) display dramatic different behaviors despite sharing the same genome. Social insects are an ideal system to study the role of gene regulation in brain development and function because individuals from different castes (workers and queens) display dramatic different behaviors despite sharing the same genome. We have been developing the ant Harpegnathos saltator as a model organism because of its unique phenotypic plasticity. In Harpegnathos ants, adult workers can become queens via a caste transition that results in germline activation, lifespan extension, and major changes in behavior. This transition can be induced and reversed and offers a unique experimental paradigm to study the molecular regulation of behavioral and neuroanatomical plasticity. In the past ten years, we have sequenced the Harpegnathos genome, determined that all major epigenetic pathways are conserved and active in this organism, and have established various manipulation techniques,...

What Art can tell us about the Brain

16 September 20222022EMBL Distinguished Visitor LectureEMBL Rome

Artists have been doing experiments on vision longer than neurobiologists. Some major works of art have provided insights as to how we see; some of these insights are so fundamental that they can be understood in terms of the underlying neurobiology. For example, artists have long realized that color and luminance can play independent roles in visual perception. Picasso said, "Colors are only symbols. Artists have been doing experiments on vision longer than neurobiologists. Some major works of art have provided insights as to how we see; some of these insights are so fundamental that they can be understood in terms of the underlying neurobiology. For example, artists have long realized that color and luminance can play independent roles in visual perception. Picasso said, "Colors are only symbols. Reality is to be found in luminance alone." This observation has a parallel in the functional subdivision of our visual systems, where color and luminance are processed by the evolutionarily newer, primate-specific What system, and the older, colorblind, Where (or How) system. Many techniques developed over the centuries by artists can be understood in terms of the parallel organization of our visual systems. I will explore how the segregation of color and luminance processing are the basis...

Somatic epigenetics mechanisms of stress allostasis and germ cell delivery of extracellular vesicles

Epperson Somatic epigenetics mechanisms of stress allostasis and germ cell delivery of extracellular vesicles Tracy L. Bale, N. Kanyuch, J. Chan, C. Morgan, N.A. Leu, S. Ament, M. Kane, C.N. Epperson Parental lifetime exposures to perturbations such as stress, infection, malnutrition, and advanced age have been linked with an increased risk for offspring disease, including a strong association with neurodevelopmental disorders. Our studies have focused on identifying the causal biological mechanisms whereby dynamic information in the environment can be transmitted by sperm to the point of conception. In our studies, we examine a causal role for somatic-to-germline transmission of stress information capable of altering fetal neurodevelopment via extracellular vesicles (EVs) in a preclinical model. Further, we have examined the somatic cells along the male reproductive tract able to generate...
