Retinal Synapse And Gap Junction Topologies

Lab PI Bryan Jones delivered a talk at theĀ 2022 Max Planck / HHMI Connectomics Conference in Berlin, Germany yesterday. (Edit): Images from the meeting can be seen here.

Abstract: Connectomics has demonstrated that synaptic networks and their topologies are precise and directly correlate with physiology and behavior. Both chemical and electrical synapses (gap junctions) are arrayed in precise network motifs that define networks and mediate sensory percepts and influence behaviors.
