MBI Emphasis Year on Mathematical Neuroscience Workshop 3: Disease (February 4-8, 2013)

Organizers: Victoria Booth, Liam Paninski, Jonathan Rubin, Steven J. Schiff, and Charles Wilson

Mathematical neuroscience is required to understand the normal functions of the computational brain. As a corollary, we can translate our fundamental understanding of the nervous system to better understand and treat disorders of the brain.

There are a variety of brain diseases that are considered dynamical - where the symptoms are consequences of pathological parameters of the underlying neuronal elements and network. Several dynamical diseases have steadily improving mechanistic understanding, embodied into computational models that increasingly reflect the dynamics of the disease symptoms. These include Parkinson's disease and epilepsy. We suspect that other more complex brain diseases are revealing a dynamical component, such as depression and schizophrenia. Along with the advent of improving with computational models, the technical ability to perform open or closed loop deep brain stimulation is now becoming increasingly applied to treat these dynamical diseases. Thus as we better understand dynamical disease, the ability to dynamically probe and control them is now at hand.

Another area of medical application of mathematical theory is in the area of brain interfaces. .... [more]

HIVE Workshop Berlin 2012 on Brain Stimulation: Call for Abstracts (deadline close)

Could computers someday interact directly with the human brain? This is the motto of the HIVE project. The goal of the workshop is to present research toward developing a new generation of powerful and controllable non-invasive brain stimulation technologies.

We hereby invite contributions to this second public HIVE workshop,  to be hold in Berlin on April 27-28th, 2012. Submission deadline for Abstracts is 11th March.

Contributions must be of a high scientific level, and typically would describe, attempt to understand, or engineer brain stimulation phenomena as well as clinical applications. Submission page instructions are here.

Researchers with new results working in any the following research areas are encouraged to submit abstracts:

  • Biophysical models of current flow in the brain
  • Neuron-current interaction models
  • Inverse modeling of neural activity
  • Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) for communication
  • tDCS, tACS, TMS experimental results
  • Neurofeedback and neuromodulation
  • Real-time EEG monitoring
  • EEG-fMRI relationships
  • Brain stimulation for therapy (sleep, improved consciousness)
  • New technologies (hardware, software, algorithms) for hyper-interation or CBI

Submitted papers will be rated by the scientific committee on quality and relevance to the goals of HIVE. The best papers will be awarded with an oral presentation, and the remaining papers may be presented as posters and will be discussed during breaks or at the end of the day. We look forward to an exciting conference with most stimulating discussions.  Best abstracts and presentations will be selected for publication in a Special Issue of the journal "Physiological Measurement".

really iam interested to know if there any relation between neurological disorders & the BMI.
