Talk in Köln

On February 6th, I gave a talk in Cologne entitled “Dense neural circuit reconstruction and graph theoretical analysis of nematode nervous systems.” In it, I emphasized primarily some of the graph theory I have been using to try and understand circuit function. I was invited by Einhard Schierenberg, who works on cell lineage evolution in nematodes. His postdoc, Jens Schulz, took the time to give me a bit of a tour of the city and had me try a bit of Kölsch at a local brewery.  I was also had a great chat (though a little short) with Johannes Berg, a physicist who is interested in network statistics. I’ll have to go back and check out more of the city when it is a bit warmer…
