Information Storage in Memory Engrams

January 22 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Talk with Prof Tomás Ryan Time and date: January 22, 2021, 4 PM GMT Prof. Tomás Ryan is working on mechanisms of memory storage and recall at the circuit level using novel technologies and multidisciplinary, collaborative approaches. His research integrates the theoretical models and techniques of experimental psychology, behavioural neuroscience, electrophysiology, and molecular genetics. The ultimate goal of this research is to reveal something of how the brain stores, modifies, and recalls our memories' records of past experience, and how…

New imaging tools to decipher neural network dysfunction underlying cognitive deficits in epilepsy

February 9 @ 17:00 - 19:00

Talk with Dr Peyman Golshani Date: February 9, 2021 5 PM BST, pub chat at 6 PM BST Abstract: Temporal lobe epilepsy is associated with memory deficits but the circuit mechanisms underlying these cognitive disabilities are not understood. We used electrophysiological recordings, open-source wire-free miniaturized microscopy and computational modelling to probe these deficits in a model of temporal lobe epilepsy. We find desynchronization of dentate gyrus interneurons with CA1 interneurons during theta oscillations and a loss of precision and stability of place fields. We also…

History of Self Experimentation in Neuroscience

February 17 @ 04:00 - 15:00

Talk with Dr. Matthew J Lennon Time and date: February 17, 2021 4 P.M. GMT Self-Experimentation has shaped the history of neurological research. Isaac Newton pushed a needle in his eye socket to map out the visual distribution of the retina. Angelo Ruffini resected sensitive parts of his own hand to discover sensory nerve endings, including the Ruffini Corpuscle. Oliver Sacks experimented with morphine to better understand subjective drug effects on patients. Kevin Warwick pioneered prosthetics research when he inserted an electrode array into…
