  • Host: David Fitzpatrick
  • Speaker: Vidhya Rangaraju

How do neurons, with their unsurpassed morphological complexity, manage their local energy landscapes? Having refined and pushed the limits of imaging and proteome labeling techniques, I will discuss how the balance between local energy demand and supply mechanisms is linked to synaptic function.
