Sama Ahmed receives fellowship from Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain
Sama Ahmed received a UW Continuation of the Bridge to Independence Fellowship from Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain. The current $610,000 award is for the final, three-year phase of the project. Award title: Brain-wide Dynamics Underlying Behavioral Multitasking in Drosophila. The project combines recent advances in behavioral analysis, in vivo brain-wide neural imaging and neurogenetics, to investigate the coordination of locomotion and acoustic signal production (courtship song) in a genetically tractable model: Drosophila melanogaster.
