Brainomics: Hacking the Brain (and Autism) with Gene Machines
Tony Zador is a professor of biology at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory who studies auditory processing, attention and decision-making in rodents.
He spoke recently at the laboratory’s 79th annual symposium on quantitative biology, which focused this year on the topic of cognition. Zador talked about his recent work trying to demonstrate how brain circuits might be mapped by using techniques for sequencing genes. I talked to Zador at the conference and an edited transcript follows—or you can watch the whole interview here.
