Paul G. Allen Foundation Awards Grants to Swartz Researchers Tony Zador & Christof Koch

Christof Koch, Lois and Victor Troendle Professor of Cognitive and Behavioral Biology, California Institute of Technology ($600,000)

Project Title: Evaluating Connectomes Using Measures of Complexity and Synergy

Professor Koch studies information processing by neural systems, using computational and theoretical approaches. He will specifically analyze the locomotion network in a worm, C. elegans, with an eye toward assessing the information flow in the neural network that leads to a clearly measurable behavior.

Tony Zador, Professor of Biology and Program Chair in Neuroscience, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory ($1.6 million)

Project Title: Sequencing the connectome: A fundamentally new way of determining the brainís wiring diagram

Professor Zador proposes to develop a method for mapping the wiring diagram of neural circuits using high-throughput DNA sequencing technology.
