    • A Compressed Sensing Framework for Efficient Dissection of Neural Circuits 

      Lee, Jeffrey B.; Yonar, Abdullah; Hallacy, Timothy; Shen, Ching-Han; Milloz, Josselin; Srinivasan, Jagan; Kocabas, Askin; Ramanathan, Sharad (Springer Nature, 2018-12-20)
      A fundamental question in neuroscience is how neural networks generate behavior. The lack of genetic tools and unique promoters to functionally manipulate specific neuronal subtypes makes it challenging to determine the ...
    • Contrasting responses within a single neuron class enable sex-specific attraction in Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Narayan, Anusha; Venkatachalam, Vivek; Durak, Omer; Reilly, Douglas K.; Bose, Neelanjan; Schroeder, Frank C.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT; Srinivasan, Jagan; Sternberg, Paul W. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2016)
      Animals find mates and food, and avoid predators, by navigating to regions within a favorable range of available sensory cues. How are these ranges set and recognized? Here we show that male Caenorhabditis elegans exhibit ...
    • Pan-neuronal imaging in roaming Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Venkatachalam, Vivek; Ji, Ni; Wang, Xian-Ling; Clark, Christopher Luce; Mitchell, James Kameron; Klein, Mason Joseph; Tabone, Christopher; Florman, Jeremy; Ji, Hongfei; Greenwood, Joel S.f.; Chisholm, Andrew; Srinivasan, Jagan; Alkema, Mark; Zhen, Mei; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2015)
      We present an imaging system for pan-neuronal recording in crawling Caenorhabditis elegans. A spinning disk confocal microscope, modified for automated tracking of the C. elegans head ganglia, simultaneously records the ...
