Credit: CaltechThe UNC School of Medicine has awarded the 17th Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize to David Anderson, PhD, the Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology for “his discovery of neural circuit mechanisms controlling emotional behaviors.”Anderson will visit Chapel Hill April 12 to receive the prize – a $20,000 cash award – and give a lecture on his work at 3 p.m. in room G202 in the Medical Biomolecular Research Building (MBRB), with a reception to follow.“David is a remarkable scientist who conducted seminal research uncovering the neural circuits key to innate behaviors associated with emotional states, such as defensive behaviors and aggression,” said Mark Zylka, PhD, director of the UNC Neuroscience Center. “Frankly, David could have also won the Perl Prize for the important work he accomplished earlier in his career on neural stem cell fate and differentiation. We look forward to welcoming him here in Chapel Hill as our 17th recipient of this prize honoring the late Dr. Edward Perl.”Anderson, who is the Director of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, received his undergraduate degree from Harvard and doctorate from the Rockefeller University. He joined Caltech in 1986. He was the first scientist to isolate a multipotent self-renewing stem cell for neurons and glial cells, the two main cell types in the brain. Anderson’s lab identified growth factors and regulatory proteins that control whether stem cells differentiate into neurons or glial cells. He also made critical contributions to understanding nerve-blood vessel interactions.Anderson is now using cutting-edge techniques to map and manipulate neural circuits that underlie emotional behaviors in both mice and fruit flies. These innate behavioral responses and associated internal states form the evolutionary underpinnings of emotional behavior in higher organisms. These studies may ultimately aid in a better understanding of human psychiatric disorders.In 2007, Anderson was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.“I am both surprised and thrilled to have been chosen for this prestigious award by the prominent neuroscientists on the Perl Prize committee, which has shown such exceptional taste in its selection of previous awardees,” Anderson said. “The recognition that this prize bestows belongs equally to the talented students and postdoctoral researchers who have trained in my laboratory, without whose effort and brilliance the work that is honored here would not have come to fruition.”The Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize is increasingly well known among biomedical scientists. Six of its previous winners went on to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine or the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Two other Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize recipients went on to win the Kavli Prize, which to neuroscientists has become nearly as prestigious as the Nobel.The Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize, established in 2000, is named after former UNC professor Edward Perl, MD, who discovered that a specific type of sensory neuron responded to painful stimuli. Before this, scientists thought that neurons responded to all stimuli and then the pain responses were sorted out in the spinal cord. The discovery had a major impact on the field of pain research, particularly in the development of pain medications.Dr. Perl passed away in 2014. Read more about his research in this remembrance.Along with Mark Zylka, the Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize selection committee consists of Tom Jessell, PhD, HHMI investigator and the Claire Tow Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Columbia University; William Snider, MD, professor of cell biology and physiology and founding director of the UNC Neuroscience Center; Ben Philpot, PhD, professor of Cell Biology and Physiology and associate director of the UNC Neuroscience Center; Thomas Albright, PhD, Conrad T. Prebys Chair in Vision Research at the Salk Institute; Vanessa Ruta, PhD, the Gabriel H. Reem & Herbert J. Kayden Assistant Professor of Neurophysiology & Behavior at Rockefeller University; Julie Kauer, professor of neurosciences & medical sciences at Brown University; and Regina Carelli, the Stephen B. Baxter Distinguished Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina.

Wenger explains Giroud substitution after angry reaction from Arsenal fans

first_imgArsene Wenger defended his decision to take Olivier Giroud off after Arsenal were reduced to 10 men against Chelsea.Gunners boss Wenger responded to the sending-off of skipper Per Mertesacker by replacing forward Giroud with defender Gabriel – a change which provoked an angry response from the home fans.Seconds later, Costa drifted in front of Gabriel to score what turned out to be the winner.“I make the decision and it was quite a normal decision,” Wenger said.“We had to go long distances (because they were down to 10 men) and we needed pace to go from one (end) to the other and needed pace to get forward.Costa’s goal was his sixth in as many games“The fact is we needed to get strength on the counter-attack and needed pace. That is why I made the decision.”The result means Chelsea are now unbeaten in nine league matches against Wenger’s side.But the Frenchman insisted: “Today was a special game. We couldn’t play with our team.“There is nothing more dangerous than when you are having to chase the game with 10 men.”See also:Costa’s goal gives Blues derby victory over 10-man ArsenalMertesacker deserved red card – HiddinkModest Hiddink explains Chelsea duo’s improvementChelsea to assess Costa injuryArsenal v Chelsea player ratingsFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Augmented Reality: Here’s Our Wishlist of Apps, What’s On Yours?

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts marshall kirkpatrickcenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Trends#web There’s another dimension present, everywhere we go, that a growing number of technologists are working to uncover. These people aren’t talking about theoretical physics or a magical world of fairies and gnomes – they’re talking about information that could offer more context to traditionally physical lived experience. Augmented Reality (AR) is the phrase being used and this practice of making layers of data available on top of real world experiences could be a big one soon. Improvements in geolocation, bandwidth, mobile devices and APIs are the foundation of this feeling that a useful Augmented Reality may be more realistic today than ever before.AR isn’t new, but it’s been pretty hokey so far. Now there’s a movement to make it really worth doing. It’s still such a fanciful prospect that we decided to publish our wish list for Augmented Reality apps we hope someone builds. We also posted some of the most interesting recent AR videos from around the web. Check it all out and share your thoughts. Place DataThe most common dreams for AR are probably concerning historical and other data about locations. Dutch software firm SPRXmobile will soon release an Android mobile app called Layar that will display real estate and restaurant information on top of the view through your phone’s camera as you pan around a city. That’s an exciting platform and one that many people are hoping will go global and be available on other phones soon.We would love to be able stand at an intersection and learn about the past and present owners of the buildings around us and about news events that have occurred within sight (’s iPhone app does this, but has performance issues and is limited in scope). ReadWriteWeb writer Sarah Perez says she’d like to visit the location of a historic military battle and view a re-enactment of the battle on some device, not just read a posted placard about the place’s history. Nokia’s Ian Kennedy told us he fantasizes about being able to look at a building and stream crowd-sourced audio commentary on the history of the place. How about an iPhone app that pulls from census and APIs – say the neighborhood you’re thinking of renting a house in made most of its political donations to the Republican Party and has had 3 major fines assessed for toxic spills in the last year.Greg Smith points to Yanko Design’s theoretical Third Eye, an electronic monocle that can be turned between “tourist” and “consumer” filters for information placed on top of the places it is pointed at.How did this man make friends in the first place?Above: Tonchidot’s mysterious product hasn’t been heard from again since appearing at the TechCrunch 50 conference and some suspect it was never real. Reports of a large established Japanese mobile company developing the same kind of application surfaced just this afternoon on Asiajin, one of the leading English-language tech blogs about Japan.Find My Keys or CarHow about an app that lets you capture and remember the location of your keys, car, or anything else you might have trouble finding later? Konstantin Gonikman says he’d like a whole Augmented Reality catalog of everything in his house for easy retrieval.Shopping!Face Recognition and People SearchSeveral people we talked to wanted some kind of people info made available for situations like seeing someone but not remembering who they are! Why limit it to people you already know, though? Those tiny conference name tags could be a thing of the past. How about being able to bring up all a persons’ public social media profile links just by looking at them through your mobile phone’s camera? That would be great.The person next to you…is a zombie.Control-F For Offline PrintIf you work online a lot, you may have already found yourself subconsciously trying to hit “control-F” when reading the newspaper to try and find words on the page. It can be frustrating to have to rely on antiquated if charming technologies like the index in a book. I would gladly pay a small extra fee for every book I buy in order to have access to full text search of that book on my phone.We don’t know what exactly is going on here, but it looks cool.What About You?What layers of information or user experiences would you like to see come out of the Augmented Reality world? Just watch out you don’t ask for what Sean Canton said he wanted out of AR today: “I’d like some rose colored glasses that make everything seem ok.”Awesome Geordi La Forge spray painted stencil at the top: “Chief Engineer” CC from Flickr user striatic.last_img read more
