Duration: : 1:30:45
Speaker: : Maryann Martone
Course Name: : INCF Short course: Introduction to neuroinformatics
Lesson title:

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.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: : 40:32
Course Name: : Introduction to neurobiology for non-specialists
Lesson title:

How does the brain learn? This lecture discusses the roles of development and adult plasticity in shaping functional connectivity.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: : 1:08:45
Speaker: : Clay Reid
Course Name: : Coding and Vision 101
Lesson title:

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.
