New Science paper

csm_15_11_26CIN_Neue_Zelltypen_Neocortex_Sperrfrist_130167f47dOur new paper has been published today in Science! In this work lead by Xiaolong Jiang in Andreas Tolias’ lab  at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, we classified cortical interneurons in adult mice and mapped their connectivity diagram. Interestingly, three simple rules go a long way in explaining the structure of the connectivity matrix. For me, this is a nice piece of heroic wet-lab work combined with the right level of machine learning based analysis.

The paper already attracted some media attention on Popular MechanicsThe Scientist and some German news outlets.
