|About the Speaker: Jeff Lichtman|
One of Dr. Lichtman’s research goals is to generate a complete map of all the neural connections in the brain- the “connectome”. His lab has developed several novel imaging techniques including the “Brainbow” mouse and serial electron microscopy reconstruction to reach this goal. Lichtman is the Jeremy R. Knowles Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology and Santiago Ramón y Cajal Professor of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University.
