Video-rate volumetric functional imaging of the brain at synaptic resolution
Publication year: 2017

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neurons and neural networks often extend hundreds of micrometers in three dimensions. Capturing the calcium transients associated with their activity requires volume imaging methods with subsecond temporal resolution. Such speed is a challenge for conventional two-photon laser-scanning microscopy, because it depends on serial focal scanning in 3D and indicators with limited brightness. Here we present an optical module that is easily integrated into standard two-photon laser-scanning microscopes to generate an axially elongated Bessel focus, which when scanned in 2D turns frame rate into volume rate. We demonstrated the power of this approach in enabling discoveries for neurobiology by imaging the calcium dynamics of volumes of neurons and synapses in fruit flies, zebrafish larvae, mice and ferrets in vivo. Calcium signals in objects as small as dendritic spines could be resolved at video rates, provided that the samples were sparsely labeled to limit overlap in their axially projected images.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A great challenge in neuroscience is understanding how activity in the brain gives rise to behavior. The zebrafish is an ideal vertebrate model to address this challenge, thanks to the capacity, at the larval stage, for precise behavioral measurements, genetic manipulations, and recording and manipulation of neural activity noninvasively and at single-neuron resolution throughout the whole brain. These techniques are being further developed for application in freely moving animals and juvenile stages to study more complex behaviors including learning, decision making, and social interactions.Wereview some of the approaches that have been used to study the behavior of zebrafish and point to opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Week-old zebrafish execute many complex, visually guided actions using a brain that displays the canonical vertebrate organization, but is less than a cubic millimeter in size. Recent studies have made considerable progress towards understanding the underlying neural circuit basis of these innate responses, at two fundamental levels. Large-scale population recordings have revealed how functional properties and activity dynamics are organized within and across brain regions. Meanwhile, single neurons have been specifically labeled to systematically characterize cell types with distinct morphologies and projection patterns. Combining these approaches, in order to investigate the role of individual, identified neurons in generating neural activity dynamics and behavior, has traditionally been possible only for simple invertebrate systems, but is now becoming feasible in a vertebrate model.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
MOTIVATION
How to partition a dataset into a set of distinct clusters is a ubiquitous and challenging problem. The fact that data vary widely in features such as cluster shape, cluster number, density distribution, background noise, outliers and degree of overlap, makes it difficult to find a single algorithm that can be broadly applied. One recent method, clusterdp, based on search of density peaks, can be applied successfully to cluster many kinds of data, but it is not fully automatic, and fails on some simple data distributions.
RESULTS
We propose an alternative approach, clusterdv, which estimates density dips between points, and allows robust determination of cluster number and distribution across a wide range of data, without any manual parameter adjustment. We show that this method is able to solve a range of synthetic and experimental datasets, where the underlying structure is known, and identifies consistent and meaningful clusters in new behavioral data.
AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION
The clusterdv is implemented in Matlab. Its source code, together with example datasets are available on: https://github.com/jcbmarques/clusterdv.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Title:
Structure of the zebrafish locomotor repertoire revealed with unsupervised behavioral clustering
Publication year: 2018

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An important concept in ethology is that complex behaviors can be constructed from a set of basic motor patterns. Identifying the set of patterns available to an animal is key to making quantitative descriptions of behavior that reflect the underlying motor system organization. We addressed these questions in zebrafish larvae, which swim in bouts that are naturally segmented in time. We developed a robust and general purpose clustering method (clusterdv) to ensure accurate identification of movement clusters and applied it to a dataset consisting of millions of swim bouts, captured at high temporal resolution from a comprehensive set of behavioral contexts. We identified a set of thirteen basic swimming patterns that are used flexibly in various combinations across different behavioral contexts and show that this classification can be used to dissect the sensorimotor transformations underlying larval social behavior and hunting. Furthermore, using the same approach at different levels in the behavioral hierarchy, we show that the set of swim bouts are themselves constructed from a basic set of tail movements and that bouts are executed in sequences specific to different behaviors.
