alanNovember 2016: SCIPP Member, Alan Litke, part of a team of ATLAS collaborators who developed a system that can record the neural activity of retinal cells. Inspired by the silicon microstrip detector technology employed in ATLAS, the team created an advanced multi-electrode array system that can simultaneously record the neural activity of hundreds of the retinal output (ganglion) cells. Full story: ATLAS Outreach at CERN.
higgs thumbNovember 2016: Article published this morning on the Symmetry Magazine website, entitled, "Q&A: What more can we learn about the Higgs?", in which four physicists, one of which is SCIPP Member Howard Haber, discuss Higgs boson research since the discovery with Angela Anderson of Symmetry Magazine (a joint Fermilab/SLAC publication). 
siliconOctober 2016: Alan Litke (SCIPP) and David Feldheim (MCD Biology) have been awarded an NIH grant for interdisciplinary neuroscience research using their novel, comprehensive measurements of visually-evoked brain activity. The bulk of the credit for the experimental work goes to  SCIPP postdoc Shinya Ito, with important technical contributions from Forest Martinez-McKinney and Serguei Kachiguine.
