Single-cell analysis of the human brain

Kun Zhang, UC San Diego

Individual cells in a population are often somewhat different from one to another. Measurements made on bulk cell populations do not capture the inherent heterogeneity of the cell population, and important insights can be missed. In this talk Dr. Zhang will discuss some technical challenges in analyzing individual cells in adult human brain, and present a number of recent progresses made in acquiring genome and transcriptome information from single cortical neurons from post‐mortem brain specimens.
