  1. 1. societ y for neuroscience Preliminary Program S a n D i e g o | n o v e m b e r 9 — 1 3
  2. 2. Plan to attend the Society for Neuroscience 43rd Annual Meeting Now more than ever is the time to join more than 30,000 colleagues from nearly 80 countries at Neuroscience 2013 — the world’s largest marketplace of ideas and tools for global neuroscience. This is the premier event in the field — the science and networking opportunities are unmatched with nearly 16,000 scientific presentations, nearly 600 exhibiting companies, and dozens of career development opportunities. Neuroscience 2013 remains one of the best values in science. Attendees can register at 2012 rates — these modest registration fees are even lower for members, students, attendees from developing countries, and advance registrants. Register early and save. This year’s meeting will be in San Diego, one of the top convention and meetings San Diego no v e m be r 9 — 1 3 destinations, offering an enjoyable climate and great value for every budget. Attendees enjoy an array of neuroscience-related social activities, budget-friendly restaurant options, convenient transportation, attractions, and nightlife. Don’t miss your chance to experience the latest scientific research and innovations, build and strengthen professional relationships, and discover state-of-the-art products and services. Top Reasons to Attend Neuroscience 2013 in Challenging Times: • Discover the latest science and cutting-edge research • Forge collaborations with peers • Access to resources for funding and career development • Explore new tools and technologies Presidential Special Lectures The Mind of a Worm: Learning From the C. elegans Connectome CME A Molecular Geneticist’s Approach to Understanding the Fly Brain CME Scott W.

However, the reality of creativity is far more complex and interesting. The central issues include removing hidden barriers to creativity and candor. We pay special attention to protecting barely formed ideas; the dynamic balance between technology and art; the necessity of structured processes to get the job done; and the random, unpredictable nature of what we do. In particular, we need to give thoughtful attention to the culture itself, for out of this culture arises new technology, new ideas, and artistic expression.

This pseudocolor image of luciferin-luciferase chemiluminescence shows the release of ATP after stimulation of glial cells on the surface of the rat retina. ATP released from glial cells in the retina is metabolized to adenosine, which, in turn, activates neuronal A1 adenosine receptors and inhibits retinal neurons. The image was taken 12 sec after glial cells were stimulated and shows a region of the retinal surface 480 µm wide. Courtesy, with permission: Eric A. Newman, 2003, The Journal of Neuroscience 23: 1659-1666 Page 4: An example of a two-dimensional crosscorrelogram. This matrix shows the variation in time of the strength of correlated activity of two neurons. The diagonal of the matrix represents the correlation strength at zero time lag. The points above and below this diagonal represent positive and negative time delays between the two neurons. Neurons in the primary visual cortex start to synchronize their activity (red part of the diagonal) before the onset of the stimulus in a figure-ground detection task. Such a switch in the internal state of the primary visual cortex is necessary for the detection of the stimulus.

Highlighted is the circuitry onto a single ganglion cell, where convergence, amplification, and saturation influence gain controls are located within the retinal network. Depicted in the details is the rod bipolar pathway specified for carrying rod signals in the mammalian retina: rod→rod bipolar→AII amacrine→cone bipolar→ganglion cell. We studied this pathway to find that a key site of gain control at the lowest mean light levels is at the rod bipolar-to-AII amacrine synapse, and at brighter light levels gain controls at earlier sites take over.
