This primer on optogenetics primer discusses how to manipulate neuronal populations with light at millisecond resolution and offers possible applications such as curing the blind and "playing the piano" with cortical neurons.
This lecture provides an overview of depression (epidemiology and course of the disorder), clinical presentation, somatic co-morbidity, and treatment options.
Part 1 of 2 of a tutorial on statistical models for neural data
What is the difference between attention and consciousness? This lecture describes the scientific meaning of consciousness, journeys on the search for neural correlates of visual consciousness, and explores the possibility of consciousness in other beings and even non-biological structures.
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.
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.
This lecture will discuss how understanding and applying simple neuroanatomical rules, one can localize the damage along the neuroaxis, the first crucial step toward making the correct clinical diagnosis and initiating treatment.
