Eve Marder: Variability, Modulation, and Homeostasis in a Rhythmic Neuronal Network

Time: 
Friday, November 21, 2014 - 10:15 AM to 11:15 AM
Location: 
1103 Bioscience Research Building

Eve Marder is the Victor and Gwendolyn Beinfield Professor of Neuroscience in the Biology Department of Brandeis University. Marder was President of the Society for Neuroscience in 2008. Marder is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of the Biophysical Society and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She received the Miriam Salpeter Memorial Award for Women in Neuroscience, the W.F. Gerard Prize from the Society for Neuroscience, the Gruber Award in Neuroscience, the George A. Miller Award from the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, the Karl Spencer Lashley Prize from the American Philosophical Society, and an Honorary Doctorate from Bowdoin College.

 

Marder studies the dynamics of small neuronal networks, and her work was instrumental in demonstrating that neuronal circuits are not "hard-wired" but can be reconfigured by neuromodulatory neurons and substances to produce a variety of outputs. Marder is now studying the extent to which similar network performance can arise from different sets of underlying network parameters, opening up rigorous studies of the variations in individual brains of normal healthy animals.
