My Master's Research Project and indeed the BMC program has come to a conclusion. Without further ado, you can check out the full project here: http://bmc1.erin.utoronto.ca/~stuart/RIN/
Please watch the animation, (direct link: https://vimeo.com/70039214) and if you can spare a little more time, feel free to play with the simulator too. I don't expect non-biologists or neuroscientists to understand most or all of it, but hopefully the visuals and interactivity are interesting.
Here's a couple of stills from the animation at very large resolutions. Feel free to download and use as wallpapers etc. (Edit: Okay, blogger apparently has a max res of 1600 on the long edge. Send me an email if you want a larger version... up to 4K).
Now I get to acknowledge everyone like an Oscar speech!
Thanks to Nick, Yves, and Michael (my committee), to all the BMC faculty, my 13 BMC colleagues (very good friends all), members of Yves' lab, my non-BMC friends, all you people that read this blog, and of course my family and Rebecca and God.
Woohoo! Done! What's next? Looking forward to a conference next week that I'm presenting a poster at. I do have some job leads and there is industry day at the end of the month. I'll keep you posted. This blog isn't going anywhere; it's been a terrific outlet for me these past ~4 years and it will continue to be that.
Thanks again everyone, and I hope you continue to check in here and see what the next stage will bring.
