The aim of this course is to demonstrate the use of an integrated set of multidisciplinary methods, ranging from neuroanatomy to MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) processing to theoretical modeling, to better understand brain morphology of large mammals (e.g. Whales).
In a serious of publication in the Journal of Comparative Neurology, in collaboration with the laboratory of Paul Manger, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, we examined the anatomy of the amygdala, the diencephalon and the hippocampus of the feliform banded mongoose and the caniform domestic ferret.
Minasa (left) and Suzuka (right) are 4th year students who joined our lab this April. Minasa will be working on the amygdala of whales and Suzuka will analyses the hippocampus of Pinnipeds. Welcome and good luck!
This talk has been postponed to a later date. The new date will be announced as soon as it is established!
Dr. Hiromasa Takemura, from the Center for Information and Neural Networks (CiNet), National Institute of Information and Communications Technology in Osaka, will present his exciting research on white matter pathways. 6th of March in Room 407 (4th fl.) – Science #5 bld. 15:00 -16:00. Everyone is welcome!!!
Nina was invited to give a talk at the 41th annual meeting of the Japanese Society for Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry (JSCPB2019), Symposium: Comparative and evolutionary approaches toward understanding the brain architecture. Tokyo, Japan
We had a wonderful time at this years Cetology meeting. It was great to meet researchers from all over Asia, listen to their presentation and discuss our newest results on Cetacean brain anatomy. The meeting was held in the National Museum of Nature and Science, Ueno. Big Thank You to the organizers!
