Dissection of the neuronal circuits and synapses that mediate the effects of drugs of abuse
Director's Seminar Series Research in the laboratory headed by Dr. Alvarez is aimed at identifying the neuronal circuits that mediate and regulate reward-motivated and compulsive behaviors. The laboratory has focused on the behaviors toward substance of abuse, such as cocaine and ethanol, in addition to consummatory behaviors towards natural rewards like food and water. Dr. Alvarez pursues an integrative approach that includes the use of electrophysiology, 2-photon laser scanning microscopy and fast-scanning cyclic voltammetry for dopamine detection together with behavioral testing and in vivo manipulation of circuit activ...

NIH Research Festival Plenary Session II - New insights through clinical imaging
The NIH intramural program has helped to pioneer the field of clinical imaging, from the earliest development of MRI technology and Louis Sokoloff ’ s now classic PET scan techniques to map and measure brain function, to recent breakthroughs such as MRI-guided closed-chest heart repair. This plenary session highlights the latest research of three NIH PIs who are extending this fine tradition of intramural-based clinical imaging advances. Shawn Chen, Ph.D. (NIBIB), will discuss nanotheranostics, the integration of diagnostic and therapeutic function in one system using the benefits of nanotechnology, which may be esse...

CANCELED - Neural Circuit Dynamics During Virtual Navigation
Neuroscience Seminar Series Dr. Tank Lab’s current focus is on persistent neural activity, a form of neural circuit dynamics that is associated with short-term memory. Persistent neural activity is a sustained increase or suppression of action potential firing elicited by a brief sensory stimulus or motor command. Across the population of participating neurons, the pattern of sustained changes in action potential firing is correlated with the information held in short term memory, while disruption of persistent activity produces deficits in memory-guided behavior. These characteristics suggest that the memory is act...

Illumination of innate and adpative immunity in the brain
NIH Director's Seminar Series Immune responses are highly dynamic and often shaped by the tissue in which they develop. The Viral Immunology and Intravital Imaging Unit is interested in defining the mechanics of innate and adaptive immune responses in living tissues. To accomplish this, we use a real-time imaging technique referred to as two-photon laser scanning microscopy. This approach enables us to peer into lymphoid and non-lymphoid tissues as they experience different immunological perturbations. We are particularly interested in understanding the dynamics of immune responses that develop to infections (viruses, par...
