Meet-the-Expert: Creating a Multimodal Brain Cell Type Atlas With Hongkui Zeng, PhD

Published on: Jul 29, 2020

To understand the function of the brain and how its dysfunction leads to brain diseases, it is essential to have a deep understanding of the cell type composition of the brain, how the cell types are connected with each other, and what their roles are in circuit function.

Visit Neuronline to join this interactive Meet-the-Expert session to hear Hongkui Zeng discuss her research team’s experience in building multiple platforms and generating large-scale datasets to characterize the transcriptomic, physiological, morphological, and connectional properties of different types of neurons in a standardized manner, toward a multimodal taxonomy of cell types and a description of their wiring diagram for the mouse brain, with a primary focus on the cortex.
