Hearing and Donuts (Brain and Bagels) Seminar

February 22, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Presenter: Caitlin Murphy (Banks lab), PhD student
Topic: Conscious Versus Unconscious Slices: Disentangling the Cortical Microcircuit in an Ex Vivo Preparation

We are interested in changes in the brain upon loss (and return) of consciousness. In ex vivo slices, we compare the effect of isoflurane on synaptic and network responses of several afferent pathways to neocortex, and begin to disentangle cortical circuitry underlying our observations. We evaluate our findings in the context of current theories of sensory processing and consciousness.
