Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:19:17

Speaker: : Sonny Chen

This tutorial demonstrates how to perform cell-type deconvolution in order to estimate how proportions of cell-types in the brain change in response to various conditions. While these techniques may be useful in addressing a wide range of scientific questions, this tutorial will focus on the cellular changes associated with major depression (MDD).

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:15:14

Speaker: : Keon Arbabi

This is a continuation of the talk on the cellular mechanisms of neuronal communication, this time at the level of brain microcircuits and associated global signals like those measureable by electroencephalography (EEG).
