IGERT Video Poster Competition Voting Open

Tony Ng (a grad student in Paul Miller’s lab in Neuroscience) writes:

I’m entering a nationwide video/poster competition organized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under the IGERT program.  There are over 100 three-minute-videos/posters in the competition.  The videos/posters are divided into 18 fields, all of which are multidisciplinary.  Mine covers cognition/biology/physics.

The competition has a Public Choice award.  Winning the award requires Facebook “likes” on my page.  I need on the order ~1000 “likes” to be in contention.  The bar has been raised from last year’s.  The competition is fierce.  Each/every vote from the Brandeis community counts!

The competition opens today (5/21) and ends Thursday (5/23) at 10pm.  For a vote to count, it is imperative to click on the “Public Choice” button, which would then trigger a Facebook “like” sign-in.  Anyone with an existing Facebook account can contribute.

Here’s the link to my 3-minute video/poster:

Act now! Tthe competition closes on Thursday at 10pm!

Hope you enjoy the videos!

Update (2 pm):

Andrew Russell from the Petsko-Ringe lab also has a poster in the competition on studying Aβ oligomers to understand Alzheimer’s Disease – check it out — vote early, vote often?

Dynamic Coding in Neural Signals Workshop on July 29

The Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science and Technology (CELEST) is holding a workshop on its cross-function initiative Dynamic Coding in Neural Signals at Boston University (677 Beacon Street, Room B02) on July 29, 2011. from 1:00 – 5:45 pm. The workshop is free and open to the public. There will be talks by invited speakers from 1 – 4:15, including presentations by Don Katz (“Perceptual processing via coherent sequences of ensemble states”) and Paul Miller (“Stochastic transitions between discrete states in models of taste processing and decision-making”). a student and postdoc poster session will follow, with ample opportunity for discussion between presenters and workshop attendees.

CELEST is a joint venture of scientists at four Boston-area universities including Brandeis and is sponspored by the National Science Foundation. Robert Sekuler, Louis and Frances Salvage Professor of Psychology at Brandeis, is a co-Principal Investigator, and Biology and Neuroscience faculty Gina Turrigiano and Paul Miller are also involved in the center.

New in Pubmed

Have no time to write News and Views, but there are a few new papers from our labs that have recently popped up in Pubmed.
