Summer of Productivity at OREL

An update on what we did with our Summer at the Orthogonal Research and Education Laboratory. We hosted a study group based on an emerging collaboration to understand how Braitenberg Vehicles can be used as a model to study neural development [1].

We hosted one Google Summer of Code student (Stefan Dvoretskii), and mentored another GSoC student through the OpenWorm Foundation (Vinay Varma). Thanks go to INCF as well for their support. We also hosted the activities of several mentees (Ziyi Gong, Jesse Parent, Ankit Gupta, and Hrishikesh Kulkarni) which is topically diverse and will be featured in future blog posts [2]. Below are three tweets from the OREL Twitter account that show highlights from some of this work (congrats again to Stefan Dvoretskii, Vinay Varma, Jesse Parent, and Hrishikesh Kulkarni for their completed milestones).
