This group is intended for those interested in cellular and network mechanisms and the functional significance of normal and pathological synchronization and oscillations observed in small invertebrate to large cortical neuronal networks.
This group discusses methods for generating and analyzing brain connectivity data (the "connectome") and how to simulate development and dynamics on anatomicially realistic neural networks. It can also be used to announce jobs, events, and CFP's.
This group focuses on modeling the activity of neural masses, rather than of individual neurons. Of particular interest are "mean field" type of methods: their mathematical analysis, numerical computation, and "real world" application.
Postdocs are at the cross-roads of education and profession, and we face unique professional and social challenges, particularly in the current academic and economic climates. This group is intended for sharing related insights strategies & comments.See More

Really sorry for the delayed mail. I was in the field where net is not accessable. I am studying the food stocking behavior in fishes with hope to know more about the evolution of stocking and managent of resource. Another area of my interest is decision making . I am analysing the role of familiarity on decision malikg ( both choice and inference) using fish model system.
Hello Haleh, It would be great to have early detection to provide timely treatment for children at risk, this has been done in regard of learning disabilities in Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
A combination of a neuropsych, emotional and QEEG assessment is the first step to provide a multimodal intervention, all these problems are complex and demand a systems approach. 60% of our work is ADHD, LD, dyslexia, anxiety and depression, specially in adolescents (50% show these problems) in many of them the treatment process alleviates the anxiety and depression, just imagine; good grades, good learning abilities, better sense of worth, more self control, more attention, more intelligence less failure, better relations with parents, peers and teachers no wonder anxiety and depression disappear! In our experience up to 80% have good results.
I definitely recommend using QEEG and NF along with other treatment modalities, the results are supported by science and more importantly by our everyday experience.
Hello Haleh, It would be great to find a genetic biomarker that correlates with response. the study is funded by us and we don't have the resources to do genetic testing. We have a lot of experience using neurofeedback 5-HTP and L-tyrosine combination for ADHD and depression in adolescents with very good results. In the past we have been using commercial supplements and the patient has to buy 3 or four bottles and ends taking 10 or more capsules or tablets.
We designed our own formula and I hope we will have it available in a few weeks.
