This lecture covers modeling the neuron in silicon, modeling vision and audition and sensory fusion using a deep network.
This lecture gives an introduction to simulation, models, and the neural simulation tool NEST.
This lecture covers an Introduction to neuron anatomy and signaling, and different types of models, including the Hodgkin-Huxley model.
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.
This lecture will highlight our current understanding and recent developments in the field of neurodegenerative disease research, as well as the future of diagnostics and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
How genetics can contribute to our understanding of psychiatric phenotypes.
Introduction to neurons, synaptic transmission, and ion channels.
2nd part of the lecture. Introduction to cell receptors and signalling cascades
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.
Introduction to the origin and differentiation of myelinating cell types, molecular mechanisms defining onset and progression of myelination, demyelination and remyelination after injury.
This lecture covers: integrating information within a network, modulating and controlling networks, functions and dysfunctions of hippocampal networks, and the integrative network controlling sleep and arousal.
Forms of plasticity on many levels - short-term, long-term, metaplasticity, structural plasticity. With examples related to modelling of biochemical networks.
[NB: The sound uptake is a bit noisy the first few minutes, but gets better from about 5 mins in]
