Dr. Narayanan Krishnamurthi was appointed to the Program Committee of the First International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies (BIOSTEC-2008) http://www.biostec.org/


Prof. Sharon Crook in collaboration with Prof. Steve Baer from the Department of Mathematics & Statistics was recently awarded a three year research grant from National Science Foundation. The primary goal of this research proposal is to use multiscale models to gain insight into two competing hypotheses for explaining synaptic feedback effects in the outer-plexiform layer of the retina. Simply put, are the feedback effects in the cone photoreceptor's synapse driven by electrical or chemical mechanisms, or both?
