The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain.
The BRAIN Initiative will accelerate the development and application of new technologies to produce dynamic pictures of the brain that show how individual brain cells and complex neural circuits interact at the speed of thought. These technologies will open new doors to explore how the brain encodes, stores, and retrieves vast quantities of information, and shed light on the complex links between brain function and behavior
Ph.D. in Neuroscience
Research Assistant in the Center for Neural Informatics, Neural Structures, and Neural Plasticity (CN3)
Curator of the Neuroscience Knowledge Network (NKN)
Todd’s dissertation was titled “Comparative topological analysis of neuronal arbors via sequence representation and alignment”. In addition to being the lead curator for NKN, Todd is overseeing user experience development for the onAir Knowledge Network System. Todd also will be participating in the Allen Institute Big Neuron hackathon this June at Janelia.
