A full understanding of brain function requires extensive knowledge of the intricate patterns of axons and dendrites that connect neurons at synapses. Such wiring diagrams (" connectomes ") are in short supply owing to the enormous number of synaptic connectivities that need to be catalogued and the very high resolution necessary to trace them [1]. The key(More)
BACKGROUND Amplified DNA probes provide powerful tools for the detection of infectious diseases, cancer, and genetic diseases. Commercially available amplification systems suffer from low throughput and require decontamination schemes, significant hands-on time, and specially trained laboratory staff. Our objective was to develop a DNA probe system to(More)
Managing Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) at high water levels is complicated since it has to prevent the flooding of the surrounding areas, and at the same time, assure the highest possible water level at the end of the rainy season. Water level in the Lake is controlled by the Degania Dam, which, at high levels, has to be operated in advance in order to(More)
Machines that learn to segment images: a crucial technology for connectomics. Production of glycoprotein-deleted rabies viruses for monosynaptic tracing and high-level gene expression in neurons. Convolutional networks can learn to generate affinity graphs for image segmentation.evoked synaptic transmission in cultured hippocampal neurons expressing(More)
