Pasta Night: from Connectomics to Dynamics

We had a great discussion which ranged from the history of connectomics and circuit mapping in model organisms to the purpose of a model and the utility of computational modeling and understanding invertebrate network dynamics in ultimately understanding how larger networks like the brain may function.The conclusion of the discussion was that the future of neuroscience lies in understanding the simultaneous activity of hundreds of thousands of neurons in coordinating behavior.

We look forward to continuing the discussion at the next pasta night!

Thanks to our chefs and everyone who helped clean up and organize for the night!
