We are at the exciting technological stage where it has become feasible to represent the anatomy of an entire human brain at the cellular level. In this presentation, the speaker explains that neuroanatomy in the XXI Century has become an effort towards the virtualization and standardization of brain tissue.
This lecture covers essential features of digital brain models for neuroinformatics.
This presentation covers the neuroinformatics tools and techniques used and their relationship to neuroanatomy for the Allen atlases of the mouse, developing mouse, and mouse connectional atlas.
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.
Functional imaging has led to the discovery of a plethora of visual cortical regions. This lecture introduces functional imaging techniques and their teachings about the visual cortex.
What is color? This lecture explores how color is "made" in the brain and variations of color perception including trichromacy, color blindness in men, tetrachromatic vision in women, and genetic engineering of color perception.
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.
