Unexpected Discoveries on Brain Function and Development from Model Organisms

Presenter: David Anderson, Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology; Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Title: What Can Model Organisms Tell Us About Emotion?

The behavior of an organism relies on the function of neural circuits. Neural circuits comprise complex ensembles of neurons interconnected through precise patterns of connections called synapses, specialized structures that underlie the regulated flow of information in the brain. How precise patterns of synaptic connections emerge during development and how these circuits control specific behaviors remain exciting frontiers in neuroscience. To gain insight into neural circuit function and development, scientists have turned increasingly to genetic technologies to manipulate specific cells within circuits and the function of specific genes in a model organism, such as a worm, fly, and mouse. In this symposium, recent progress in uncovering the cellular and molecular basis of neural circuit function and development will be presented.

Celebrating the Birth of the Laser: A Look Back After 50 Years

Presenter: William Bridges, Carl F Braun Professor of Engineering, Emeritus

Title: Gas Lasers: The Early Years

In 1960, the laser was an embryonic research tool with no clear applications beyond the laboratory "a solution in search of a problem." Since then, the laser has acquired immense commercial, industrial, and scientific importance. Its impact on how we live, from health care to entertainment to national security, has been enormous. This session tells the story of how the laser came to be, and provides a first-hand account of the birth and early growth of this ubiquitous scientific device. It also recognizes a major cele
