Bock, Davi

Davi Bock studies how the activity of neuronal circuits relates to the anatomical “wiring” diagram of the neurons comprising the circuitry. Following physiological characterization of a set of neurons, multi-terabyte electron microscopy image volumes containing the characterized neurons are generated using high-throughput electron microscopy of serial thin sections. Connectivity between neurons is established by tracing…
