  Neuroscience Institute:   Neuroscience Institute Seminar --- "The Neural Computation of Inconsistent Choice Behavior Humans are often inconsistent (irrational) when choosing among simple bundles of goods, even without any particular changes to framing or context. I will present two studies that examine the neural computations that give rise to such inconsistencies. In the first study, we developed a novel index that measures the severity of inconsistency of each choice, enabling us to directly trace its neural correlates. We found that the BOLD signal in value related brain areas is correlated with the severity of inconsistency on each trial and with the subjective value of the chosen alternative. This suggests that deviations from rational choice arise in the regions responsible for value computation. In the second study, we investigated the ongoing dynamics of inconsistent choices to try and disentangle the value-based elements from the motor execution elements (“trembling hand”) that leads to an inconsistent choice. We do so by examining the dynamics of the mouse movements that leads to an inconsistent choice. We show that both motor and value-based components contribute to the severity of an inconsistent choice. Hence, we provide evidence strengthening the notion that substantial components of inconsistent behavior are due to variability in both the neural computation of value and motor execution." , Dino Levy, PhD Assistant Professor Tel Aviv University Tel Aviv, Israel , 12:00 PM, Science Building, SB 1220 - Contact Gabriela Serrano at 212-263-5410 or at Gabriela.Serrano@nyulangone.org

  Neuroscience Institute:   Neuroscience Institute Seminar --- "The Glymphatic System: Brain Clearance via Peri-vascular Pathways Due to the blood-brain barrier and the absence of lymphatic vessels, the conventional methods for interstitial solute removal are deficient in the brain. In 2012 it was discovered that the brain uses perivascular pathways for fluid influx and drainage. This system was named the glia-lymphatic (glymphatic) system due to its dependence on astroglia cells and resemblance to the lymphatic system. Experiments in various animal models confirmed that the astrocytic AQP4 water channel is a molecular driver of the glymphatic system and plays an important role in brain clearance. Other glia cells have not yet been implicated in glymphatic function. To test the role of pericytes for the glymphatic system we used Pdgfbret/ret mice, in which the retention motif of the platelet-derived growth factor B (PDGF-B) is genetically deleted, leading to reduced PDGF-B signaling and pericyte deficiency. We identified PDGF-B as the first growth factor that is crucial for the development of the glymphatic system, likely due to its role in pericyte development and astrocyte AQP4 polarization. Finally, I will also show some new data on efflux routes of CSF to the periphery created by imaging of whole mice after tissue clearance." , Iben Lundgaard, PhD Assistant Professor Lund University Lund, Sweden , 11:00 AM, Science Building, SB 103 - Contact Gabriela Serrano at 212-263-5410 or at Gabriela.Serrano@nyulangone.org

  Neuroscience Institute:   Sniff-synchronized, Gradient-guided Olfactory Search by Freely Moving Mice --- "Chemosensory navigation may be the most ancient behavioral problem that motile organisms have evolved to solve. It remains central to the lives of many animals, including mice. To understand this behavior, we have established a high-content olfactory search assay in which freely-moving mice must report the location of olfactory targets. Mice learn this assay rapidly, and perform hundreds of trials per day. Mice solve this task by using concentration gradient cues, but stereo-olfaction — comparison of odor concentration between the two nostrils — is not necessary for performance of the task. Movement trajectories are consistent but not stereotyped, and mice move and sniff rapidly during task performance. Strikingly, these two motor programs are precisely synchronized — movements of the head and nose follow the sniff rhythm with precision at the 10s of milliseconds scale. Further, by using machine learning methods, we find that the continuous movement trajectories can be parsed into elementary motor motifs. These motifs also lock to sniffing, such that the different motifs preferentially occur at different phases of the sniff cycle. The sniff phase preferences of these motor motifs are consistent across mice. Together, our work clarifies the sensory computations and motor strategies with which mice solve the olfactory where problem, and guides ongoing work into the underlying neural mechanisms." , Matt Smear, PhD, PhD Assistant Professor University of Oregon Eugene, Oregon , 10:00 AM, Science Building, SB 1220 - Contact Christine Persinger at 646-501-4591 or at Christine.Persinger@nyulangone.org
