Quantitative Biology Institute News in Review, 2019-20

The academic year saw significant changes for Quantitative Biology Institute. The previous director of the Institute, winfried (Biological Sciences), went into well-deserved retirement, and Peter Jung (Physics & Astronomy) was elected as QBI’s new chair. Jung works closely with the new leadership team of neuroscientist Mitchell Day (Biological Sciences) and biomathematician […]

Invited Speaker Brown Discusses Work on Axonal Transport at Neuroscience Research Day

Neuroscience Research Day award ceremony: Dakota Brockway, Mary Gemmel, Catherine Early, Daewoo Lee, Nilaj Chakrabarty.

By Amanda Biederman The Ohio State University professor Anthony Brown opened the first annual Neuroscience Research Day with a keynote lecture describing his work on neurofilaments and axonal transport. Neuroscience Research Day, which was contrived by a team of faculty members, graduate students and undergraduate students, brought together members of […]

Neuroscience Faculty Article Featured by Journal of Neurophysiology

Terminal arbors of 4 afferents used in the simulations. Boutons are shown in red, the axon initial segment (AIS) in green, and myelin in blue. Clockwise from top left: lateral extrastriolar afferent (LES), afferent from the striola (zone 2), juxtastriolar afferent, and medial extrastriolar afferent (MES). The myelinated axons are truncated. As modeled, membrane area of the peripheral tree and average axon diameter are as follows: LES, 1,696 μm2 and 1.22 μm; striola, 1,786 μm2 and 1.85 μm; juxtastriolar, 1,157 μm2 and 1.7 μm; and MES, 502 μm2 and 1.23 μm. Scale bars, 10 μm. Arrows indicate location of the AIS (green) at the junction of the axon (black) and myelin (blue) segments.

The Journal of Neurophysiology gave a Facebook shout out to an article by Dr. William R. Holmes, Professor of Biological Sciences, and co-authors from the Biological Sciences neuroscience program. “Using models of utricular bouton afferents, Ohio University researchers examined the role of afferent-hair cell connectivity in determining spike train regularity,” […]
