This lecture covers modeling the neuron in silicon, modeling vision and audition and sensory fusion using a deep network.
Presentation of past and present neurocomputing approaches and hybrid analog/digital circuits that directly emulate the properties of neurons and synapses.
Presentation of the Brian neural simulator, where models are defined directly by their mathematical equations and code is automatically generated for each specific target.
The lecture covers a brief introduction to neuromorphic engineering, some of the neuromorphic networks that the speaker has developed, and their potential applications, particularly in machine learning.
This lecture covers computational principles that growth cones employ to detect and respond to environmental chemotactic gradients, focusing particularly on growth cone shape dynamics.
In this lecture you will learn that in developing mouse somatosensory cortex, endogenous Btbd3 translocate to the cell nucleus in response to neuronal activity and oriented primary dendrites toward active axons in the barrel hollow.
In this presentation, the speaker describes some of their recent efforts to characterize the transcriptome of the developing human brain, and and introduction to the BrainSpan project.
Introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
This lecture focuses on how the immune system can target and attack the nervous system to produce autoimmune responses that may result in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis and lupus cerebritis manifested by motor, sensory, and cognitive impairments. Despite the fact that the brain is an immune-privileged site, autoreactive lymphocytes producing proinflammatory cytokines can cause active brain inflammation, leading to myelin and axonal loss.
