Colloquium: Samarasinghe on in vitro models of neural circuit formation

Dr. Samarasinghe (UCLA website)

This week’s seminar in the Biology Colloquium series features Ranmal Samarasinghe, Assistant Professor-in-Residence in Neurology at UCLA. Dr. Samarasinghe studies neural network formation and function, with particular interest in how neural circuit dysfunction may contribute to epilepsy and autism. His talk will be entitled, “Modeling neural circuit formation and function with human brain organoids”

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode 8596. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
