Manipulate the default connectome provided with TVB to see how structural lesions effect brain dynamics. In this hands-on session you will insert lesions into the connectome within the TVB graphical user interface. Afterwards the modified connectome will be used for simulations and the resulting activity will be analysed using functional connectivity.
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.
In an overview of the structure of the mammalian neocortex, this lecture explains how the mammalian cortex is organized in a hierarchy, describing the columnar principle and canonical microcircuits
The retina has 60 different types of neurons. What are their functions? This lecture explores the definition of cell types and their functions in the mammalian retina.
Optical imaging offers a look inside the working brain. This lecture takes a look at orientation and ocular dominance columns in the visual cortex, and shows how they can be viewed with calcium imaging.
Tutorial describing the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas
Tutorial describing the basic features of the Brain Explorer® 3-D viewer for the mouse brain
The chair of the workshop is giving an introduction and a motivating argument.
This lecture highlights the importance of correct annotation and assignment of location, and updated atlas resources to avoid errors in navigation and data interpretation.
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.
