The lab won its first R01 from the NIH! This project is sponsored by the NIH BRAIN Initiative’s Theory, Models, and Methods (TMM) Program. We look forward to doing rockin’ science with our collaborators in the Hengen lab under this award!
The lab was selected to receive a McKnight Foundation Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Award to fund our work in neural distribution alignment!! (Article)
Congratulations to Max Dabagia for being awarded a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! Max will be starting his PhD in the ML-CS program in Fall. Way to go Max!!
At the main meeting, John presented new results on using optimal transport for distribution alignment at NeurIPS. Check out the paper and a website where we discuss applications of the method to neural recordings.
Following the main meeting, Max presented his work on using Wasserstein barycenter regression for connectomics at the Optimal Transport for Machine Learning (OTML) Workshop. The workshop was great, we learned a lot!
Eva chaired the Deep Learning and Neuroscience session at the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s 53rd Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers. We also had Aish present her work on Modeling Variability in Brain Architecture in the same session!
