A Frequency-Dependent Mechanism for Axon Length Regulation
Biomathematics Seminar
Time: 3:05
Location: Zoom. Seminar link has info.
An axon is the longest protrusion from a neuron, which can be thousands of times longer than the cell body. A natural question is how the neuron controls the length of the axon. A recently proposed me... More

Techniques to Compute the Basic Reproduction Number in Epidemic Models
Biomathematics Seminar
Time: 3:05
Location: Zoom. Seminar link has info.
In epidemic models, we would like to determine the behavior of an infectious disease (i.e., will we have an epidemic or not). It turns out that you just need to look at a number, called the Basic Repr... More
