Cycle de conférences : Srinivasa Chakravarthy
Du 21 novembre au 19 décembre 2017
21/11: The basal ganglia as an exploration engine
28/11: Modelling gait abnormalities in Parkinson’s disease
5/12: Modeling neuro-glio-vascular interactions: do cerebral vessels
12/12: A unified model of hippocampal spatial cells
19/12: Modelling the functions of dopamine and serotonin in basal ganglia
Scientific focus :
The lab consists of researchers and students from multi-disciplinary backgrounds who work on modeling various aspects of the brain, especially the Basal Ganglia so as to better understand Parkinson’s disease.
Another motivating force of the lab’s research is to see if the network principles learnt from the study of the brain can be applied to other physiological networks, for example, the cardiovascular network.
