Join The Kavli Foundation for a live webcast with Miyoung Chun, Michael Roukes and Rafael Yuste - three of the paper's authors - on this proposed way to catalyze brain research in the United States.
Rafael Yuste is a professor of biological science and neuroscience at Columbia University, co-director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Science and director of the NeuroTechnology Center, also at Columbia. Yuste is interested in the structure and function of cortical circuits, the biology of dendritic spines, small protrusions on the branches of neurons, and the pathophysiology of epilepsy. To study these questions, Yuste has pioneered the application of imaging techniques.

Such a network, akin to the type of big, expensive facilities historically built for physicists and astronomers by governments, was first mooted 3 years ago, when Rafael Yuste, a neuroscientist at Columbia University in New York, and five colleagues drafted the proposal for what would ultimately become President Obama's Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative.

"This family of ruthenium caged compounds can greatly advance research in different fields of biology, such as neuroscience, cell and developmental biology and possibly also cancer biology, by enabling the optical manipulation of a variety of cellular functions with visible light and two-photon lasers," says Dr. Rafael Yuste, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Yuste is a co-inventor of the compounds, with his collaborator Dr. Roberto Etchenique, a professor in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires.

Rafael Yuste's ideas on tracking neural activity helped spark President Obama's Brain Mapping Initiative. He'll tell us what this venture will mean to neuroscience.
BIO: Rafael Yuste is an HHMI Investigator, Professor of Biological Sciences and Neuroscience at Columbia University and Co-director of the Kavli Foundations Institute for Neural Circuitry. He obtained his M.D. at the Universidad Autonoma in Madrid. After a brief period in Brenners laboratory in Cambridge, he did his Ph.D work with Katz and Wiesel at Rockefeller University and postdoctoral research with Tank and Denk at Bell Labs. Dr. Yuste has pioneered the application of imaging techniques in neuroscience, such as calcium imaging of neuronal circuits, two-photon imaging, photostimulation using caged compounds and holographic spatial light modulation microscopy. These technical developments have resulted in several patents, two of which are commercially licensed. Yuste has obtained many awards for his work, including New York City Mayors and the Society for Neurosciences Young Investigator Awards. Finally, he has recently been involved in launching the Brain Activity Map Project, a large-scale international effort to record and manipulate the activity of every neuron in brain circuits, a role highlighted by Nature who named Yuste "One of the 5 scientists to watch in 2013. Dr. Yuste and his laboratory are pursuing a "reverse engineering" strategy to understand the function of the cortical microcircuit, a basic element of cortex architecture.

The Center draws together researchers from Columbia's Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Kavli Institute for Brain Science. It is led by Rafael Yuste, professor of biological sciences and neuroscience, an authority on the development of optical methods in neuroscience. Yuste, a co-director of the Kavli Institute, was the lead author of the initial Brain Activity Map proposal that was vital to President Obama's BRAIN initiative.
"Rafael Yuste is among the world's leading experts in the development of optical methods for mapping the brain and this new Center under his leadership adds another critical piece to our collective scholarship at the frontiers of neuroscience."
"The interface between neuroscience and the physical sciences is creating powerful new tools that provide new ways of understanding the brain," said Yuste.
