Brain Mapping and Neurobiology
University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory
The Kasthuri lab at the University of Chicago and Argonne is pioneering new techniques for brain mapping of the fine structure of the nervous system – ‘connectomics’ and ‘projectomics’. They hope to help answer questions like: how do brains learn as they grow up? And how do brains differ across individuals and across species? And how can we reverse engineer brain function in our own computers and robots? Globus is used by these researchers for file transfer and sharing.
