Rubén Armañanzas

Research Assistant Professor, Center for Neural Informatics, Neural Structures, and Neural Plasticity of the Krasnow Institute at George Mason University.

Dr. Armañanzas research topics include machine learning, computational neuroscience, and neuroinformatics. In particular, applications within these topics are: knowledge discovery in digital neuronal reconstructions, automatic classification of neuronal types, complex neuromorphic networks, and unveiling key aspects of neuronal morphogenesis in the developing brain.

Keivan Moradi

Research Assistant: Hippocampome.org
PhD Candidate: Theoretical, Computational & Physiological Neuroscience and Research Assistant, George Mason University

Dr. Moradi gathers information about the connectivity of hippocampal neurons and also their synaptic electrophysiology. He is presently working on developing the next release of Hippocampome.org based on this information.

Sridevi Polavaram

Research Faculty & Software Engineer, Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study, George Mason University.

Dr. Polavaram received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from George Mason University, she has been working for over a decade in the field of Computational Neuroanatomy and Neuroinformatics providing services in software engineering, data management, analytics,  visualization, and applied ontologies. Her current area of research investigates biologically meaningful morphological patterns derived from digitally reconstructed neuronal arbors representing the cellular diversity of the nervous system.
