Neurophysiology: Exploring Basic Research and Clinical Consequences - A webinar series covering fundamentals, late-breaking research, and novel discoveries in the field of neuroscience & related disease models.
Micaela Merrill discusses her inspiration for science, as well as where she plans to take her career in the future. Her current project is a subset of a larger research story that seeks to understand the risk factors and comorbidities of PTSD in a metropolitan population of Black Americans.
In this webinar, Dr. Ileana Hanganu-Opatz, Dr. Jastyn A. Pöpplau, and Marilena Hnida discuss their research on prefrontal networks in developing head-fixed mice, and the role of these networks in cognition and models of neurodevelopmental diseases.
One common post-COVID symptom is brain fog or "COVID fog," which may affect up to 25% of recovered individuals. Given the global prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 and the detrimental impact of such cognitive impairment, the public health implications are considerable. Fernández-Castañeda et al. recently examined the underlying neurological changes associated with COVID fog, which we review in this blog post.
Dr. Fiona Harrison, discusses how vitamin C deficiency and exposure to toxins can impact glutamate uptake and clearance, and how even small changes in neural signaling can be detected by monitoring EEG activity and correlated with performance in learning and memory tasks.
Dr. Fiona Harrison discusses how dietary deficiency and exposure to toxins can impact glutamate uptake and clearance, and the subsequent changes in neural signaling can be detected through altered EEG activity and performance on learning and memory tasks.
Experts discuss dyadic experiments, highlighting why equipment should be unobtrusive, the importance of tightly synchronized data, and how to select the right equipment based on your experimental objective.
In this episode of Expert Answers, Drs. Wykes and Umpierre discuss how microscopy, electrophysiology, and optogenetics are used to study microglial calcium signaling and epileptic networks in awake head-fixed mice.
Chris Rand discusses the updated 200A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific. He walks through setting up the system before sharing best practices, all while demonstrating the integral functions of the system.
Ralph Lydic and Tally Largent-Milnes discuss physiological mechanisms behind the opioid epidemic and present their research on the effects of opioids on sleep and respiratory depression in preclinical mouse models.
