Larry Abbott – Vector computations in the fly brain

On February 10, Professor Larry Abbott of Columbia University to kicked off the spring 2021 Neuroscience Distinguished Lecture Series with a fantastic talk on his collaborative work with Gaby Maimon and Cheng Lyu, on the directional vector computations performed in the Drosophila brain. This research led to a detailed understanding of basic mechanisms needed for goal-directed navigation and path integration. If you missed the talk, you can view it here.
