This week on Neurotalk, we chat with Daniel Colón-Ramos about how glia directs synapse formation, how synaptic positions are maintained as the body and brain grows, and how his science networking site Ciencia Puerto Rico has changed science education in Puerto Rico.

Dr. Colón-Ramos is an associate professor of cell biology at Yale University, and is the founder of Ciencia Puerto Rico: http://www.cienciapr.org/

Daniel Colón-Ramos: Networks and the Nervous System

Play
Read more
Talk Description: Can a single human brain ever understand how a human brain works? Colón-Ramos argues not - but a network of brains might! Networks are an essential part of science, whether it is at the level of single neurons connecting to form a brain, or networked brains forming a scientific community. Colón-Ramos studies neural networks in the nematode C. elegans to uncover how neurons organize and communicate with each other to form the nervous system. Using the nervous system as a metaphor, he explains how our own brains, similar to neurons, are "wired to be wired", and how scientists connect their brains to weave new knowledge.

About the Speaker: Daniel Colón-Ramos is an Associate Professor of Cell Biology and Cellular Neuroscience at the Yale School of Medicine. His lab uses C. elegans to study how the brain forms precise neural connections during development. Colón-Ramos was born and raised in Puerto Rico and is a co-founder of Ciencia Puerto Rico (http://www.cienciapr.org/en), a non-profit organization that connects Puerto Rican scientists who are spread around the globe, to promote scientific research and education in Puerto Rico.

Daniel Colón-Ramos: Making Science Relevant

Play

About this talk: Growing up in Puerto Rico, most of the science Colón-Ramos learned in school did not feel relevant to his life; an experience shared by many other Puerto Rican scientists. So, Colón-Ramos, together with a group of collaborators, founded Ciencia Puerto Rico allowing geographically dispersed Puerto Rican scientists to communicate, mentor, educate and promote scientific research in Puerto Rico. It is a model that could work well to connect scientists all over the world.
