About Us

Neuroscientists Talk Shop is the University of Texas at San Antonio's (UTSA) Neurobiology Podcast, showcasing the current research of internationally renowned guest Neuroscientists. Each episode features a moderated discussion with a cross section of UTSA Neurobiology faculty, highlighting the featured guest's research, and the state of the art in the field at hand.

Latest Episodes

Jacques Wadiche PhD

Jacques Wadiche (UAB School of Medicine) talks to us about multivesicular neurotransmitter release (MVR) in the CNS. He takes us through recent work from his lab that gets at PKA-dependent molecular regulation of MVR whereby synaptic release depends on the number of docked vesicles available for release upstream of release probability. Duration: 51 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Matt Higgs (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Salma Quraishi (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Timothy J. Petros PhD

Tim Petros (NICHD/NIH) talks about new single cell RNA and epigenetic approaches to understanding the intrinisic programs that determine interneuron diversity. The group discusses how to determine causation vs correlation in identifying candidate mechanisms that regulate interneuron fate decisions, and how historic concepts of cell type (based on morphology, connectivity, physiology etc) map onto transcriptomic data clustering. Duration: 46 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Annie Lin (Assoc Prof, UTSA) Asif Maroof (Asst Prof, UTSA) Salma Quraishi (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Steve Small MD PhD

Steve Small (UT Dallas) discusses how well 19th and 20th century localizationist metaphors for the brain have served our understanding of behavior, especially in the realm of language, and what new strategies are replacing them in the new millennium. Duration: 46 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Todd Troyer (Assoc Prof, UTSA) Nicole Wicha (Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Michael Smotherman PhD II

Mike Smotherman joins us again to talk echolocation in bats, specifically howphysiological studies in his labinvestigate the circuitry that shapes sonar pulse acoustics. He discusses how bats in groups implement circuit plasticity to coordinate their sonar systems to minimize interference.
