    Hello everyone! My work focuses on the interplay between the brainstem and spinal cord for movement. Specifically, I am interested in a subpopulation of serotonin neurons in the caudal ventral medulla and their role in initiating/facilitating movement. My research uses a variety of techniques, including traditional electrophysiology (in vivo fictive locomotion preparation) as well as new tools such as optogenetics and chemogenetics. So far, we have discovered that activation of a small subset of serotonin neurons is able to concomitantly activate both motor networks and autonomic networks. We are currently on the last edits of our paper and hope to submit soon for publication.
  6. Nowadays blood pressure is one of the most common lifestyle diseases. What is blood pressure? The amount of pressure your blood exerts to shove through your arteries is called blood pressure. The heart uses force when it pumps to pump oxygen-rich blood into your arteries. They transport it to the tissues and cells of your body. Medical problems might result from having abnormally high blood pressure. Your blood pressure can only be affirmed via monitoring. Ear buds and AI technologies in Medical Sciences The University of Toronto's institutional strategic initiative TRANSFORM HF has awarded a seed grant to Maria kakis, an assistant professor in the department of computer science in the Faculty of Arts & Science, for his project "Accessible Blood Pressure Estimation with Ear buds." TRANSFORM HF develops point-of-care diagnostics, wearable, and AI technologies to monitor and proactively treat people with heart failure. Visit Assignment Help Vancouver Blood pressure cuffs are the gold standard for blood pressure assessment, but they can only be used on occasion: Someone has to sit down, put the cuff on their arm, and remain still to complete the measurement. This procedure can be unmanageable and people might not wear the cuff properly or listen to the official protocol for measurement. And, of course, people must own blood pressure cuffs for self-monitoring at home. The professor who invented the technology of ear buds that can monitor your blood pressure aims to remove the cost of a cuff blood pressure machine, apart from the machine cost he wants, people can enjoy the ease of their homes while getting information about their blood pressure. The AI based ear buds not just assist in blood pressure analysis but also self-management of heart failure. Most of the ear buds have the facility of noise cancelling, the technology works on the idea of a double microphone, one outside, and another inside, the outer one cancels the voice, and the inside one picks interesting sounds of the heart and body. The researcher demonstrated that the inside body sounds recorded by the inside microphone can be used to record a heartbeat similar to a stethoscope. The incorporation of heart rate with different signal processing techniques will help in getting to know about blood pressure. Visit Assignment help Victoria How these ears do buds work? The benefit of using earphones to monitor blood pressure is that people wouldn't have to change their activities. Simply by wearing the ear buds, the in-ear microphone would record audio and send it over Bluetooth to your smartphone, which would then evaluate the heart rhythm to assess your blood pressure. You could be shown that data or the medical team can also use it. This technology will work with any ear bud that possesses an in-ear microphone. So, the technology will operate as long as patients already own active noise-cancelling ear buds! A quiet atmosphere will be vital for effective use because heart sounds can be quite delicate and earphones can be deployed in loud environments. People who stay at their home can utilize it quite well without spending fortune of money on plenty of devices. REFERENCE Adams, R. (2018, May 11).

    Registration Link TBD Join this interactive session as Dr. Kaitlin Laws and Dr. Greg J. Bashaw discuss their paper, “DrosoPHILA: A Partnership between Scientists and Teachers That Begins in the Lab and Continues into City Schools”, with BrainFacts editor, Dr. Kelley Remole. Attendees can submit questions at registration and live during the webinar Below is the significance statement of the paper published on February 6, 2023, in eNeuro and authored by Kaitlin M. Laws, Ent Natale, Edward A. Waddell, Jamie R. Shuda and Greg J. Bashaw Outreach programming creates connections between scientists and their communities while expanding students’ perception of what science entails and who practices it. As such, outreach programming can act as one part of a multipronged approach to diversify the scientific workforce. To build sustainable, effective science outreach curricula, scientists should seek input from both teachers in their communities and experienced outreach educators. Here, we present our outreach program, DrosoPHILA, as a model for such partnerships. By explaining the program’s development and making our supporting materials available, we hope to facilitate the creation of similar programs across different subject areas.

    I was in my freshman year of medical school (almost 20 years ago) when I first heard the term Neurophobia. Older students used this term to scare younger ones and describe the difficulties in learning neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and neuroscience. Lucky for me, I had excellent teachers, so what they (the senior students) described as a "terrible learning process" turned out to be a pleasure, fun , and later, my life commitment. But this discovery and love story with the neurosciences was not repeated for many of my colleagues. Many decided to simply ignore the specialty as much as possible, and study only what was necessary to pass tests and deal with emergencies. I always thought that was a sad ending, but now, as a professor of neuroscience and neurosurgery, I see history repeating itself. But I look at it with a more critical eye. Neurophobia is stigmatizing, reductionist and highly harmful. It robs students of the chance to explore a fascinating area of knowledge, to engage with it, and to benefit thousands of people on laboratory benches, in offices, hospitals and classrooms. As a teacher, I've always tried to combat neurophobia, but I feel compelled to do something bigger. I am committed to doing more, whether it be by knowing the prevalence of neurophobia in my academic environment, and devising more effective strategies to combat them. I would love suggestions and contributions. We need more minds working together!

    Hi! I've been working with translational neuroscience. I am part of a multidisciplinary team (with neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropediatricians, scientists in the basic area) and we work so that the research developed in our laboratories can reach our patients. I am directly involved on two main fronts: brain tumors and cerebral palsy. At the university, we are studying study optimization techniques and increased performance in our students.

    Hello!! I'm working with stress... and im studying stress (bad joke I know, sorry). We are interested in the Neurobiology of the stress and de dissociative disorders. We are looking for differentiate the participation of the glutamatergic system in males and females. Besides, we are looking how the social isolation produces an impact in stressed and non stressed animals and the participation of the amygdala-Hippocampus-prefrontal cortex axis. Finally, we are working with an endemic octopus from Mexico (Octopus Maya) to understand the cognitive process (learning and memory, stress, etc.) and how a neural network can do everything without a brain without specific structures, (hippocampus, nuclei accumbens, amygdala, etc.), can behave and perform in the same way as other species with another kind of brain.

    I am currently working on developing open access, multimedia resources (tutorials, courses, and guidelines) to help the neuroscience community implement FAIR data management practices in their research. The open neuroscience community is composed of an amazing group of dedicated "community servants". They volunteer their time and effort to develop open source and open access tools, standards, and infrastructure for the greater good of neuroscience as a discipline; and they are not deterred by the slow adoption of these practices of the neuroscience community-at-large; they keep plugging away to solve the issues related to data integration, sharing, management, and analysis.

  16. The murder of George Floyd in May 2020 in Minneapolis sparked protests worldwide and inspired the formation of groups centered on connection and visibility for Black people in predominately white organizations and institutions. Two months later, Angeline Dukes, an assistant professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Minnesota, formed Black in Neuro in July 2020 — a nonprofit organization that aims to diversify neurosciences through community-building and celebration.

    REGISTER NOW! Join this interactive session as Dr. Terry Dean and Dr. Vittorio Gallo discuss their paper, “Endogenous Circadian Clock Machinery in Cortical NG2-Glia Regulates Cellular Proliferation” with Editor-in-Chief Christophe Bernard. Attendees can submit questions at registration and live during the webinar. Below is the significance statement of the paper published on September 19, 2022, in eNeuro and authored by Terry Dean, Aissia Victoria Koffi, Evan Goldstein, Javid Ghaemmaghami, and Vittorio Gallo. Circadian rhythm disturbances are commonly seen in neurologic disorders across the life span. The ramifications of these disturbances for the cellular healing capabilities of the brain are unknown. We show here that the largest population of regenerative cells in the adult central nervous system, known as NG2-glia, are indeed dependent on the integrity of their endogenous circadian rhythms. They not only rhythmically express molecular clock components, but the critical clock gene Bmal1 plays an important role in regulating their ability to proliferate, both at rest and after injury. These findings underscore the importance of circadian dysregulation in affecting brain recovery at the cellular level in neurologic disease.

    What an amazing idea this topic is! In my case, I’m still over the course of my undergraduate degree, I haven't stablished in a single research topic. Nonetheless, I'd like to present my story with Neuroscience so far. I hope you all enjoy it! Throughout High School, with the help of my amazing Biology professor MA. Alvissus, I was able to participate at an international congress, a result of my first and second articles. An analysis of the internet impacts on the Anti-vaccination Movement (at Brazil) and a review on Cognitive Decline summed up my initial interaction with Immunology and, most importantly, introduced me to Neuroscience more profoundly than ever. Before starting my current college undergraduation - but after having completed High School, because life is complicated - Maths and Physics got me deepening my studies into Neuroimaging (including a non-credit specialization I completed online). Among other courses, I got dazzled towards much more than studies of the brain, I was more certain than ever: I would become a researcher someday. Months pass by and I wrote a revision onto Neuroimaging research patterns, which was submitted (though, unfortunately, not accepted at a Journal) but, after all, presented myself to the editors. This interaction provided me an unbelievable invitation: to peer review an article - which was later published - at the same Journal. Nowadays, at college, I found it important to rephrase that, much more than new courses, or even passion, the knowledge of Maths and Physics helped me so much. Both to find my way to wish to understand a MRI machine and to review an article and its statistical data: I appreciate the formulas and the numbers. Mostly, I see myself deepening into Neuroimaging, including computational, mathematical, physical, chemical and biological topics. Specifically, Neural Networks, Statistics, Medical Physics, Nano-contrast Development and Neuroplasticity are part of what motivate me towards prospective researches. We’ll see how college will go… Shall STEM help me!

    International Love Data Week 2023

    My final post for this week addresses a need brought up in the conversation: forums where researchers can have conversations and share lessons learned about data management, sharing, and storage. Today's tip is a neuroscience called Neurostars, an open access question and answer site that serves as a forum for knowledge exchange between the neuroscience researchers at all levels of expertise and the community of standards, tools, and infrastructure developers and providers. The service is extremely popular with over 98,000 users in 2022; and importantly, all content is archived, searchable, and does not require a log-in. Importantly, the content is moderated by community moderators. I recommend that you check it out.

  27. A path of brilliant stories - from personal to scientific trajectories - Dr. Kelsey Martin's webinar extends itself even further than the title prompted, bringing our curiosity at every each neuron. After all, her studies, roles in the Academia and in the Philanthropy have "plasticity" in common. In one hand, the keyword moves towards the topic of Cell Biology. In the other, it merges and transports us among this amazing webinar, shaping and reshaping ideas. Now available on demand, the topic of my second Event Recap tells about February 1st's event in a different matter. While Dr. Luby’s presentation resided much more on the prospect of the partnerships that had composed the simultaneous articles of a unique and unified research, shall us focus on : approach suited for Dr. Martin’s path. For an instance, the representation focused on the ensemble of such outstanding publications - that were unified among Neuroimaging and Psychology at the previous Event Recap - doesn’t describe the life journey behind Dr. Martin's words. Therefore, I propose that my second text follows another direction - that ought to be followed in the next few paragraphs - and, within the purpose of celebrating the best Science has to offer, the researches cited at the webinar (by Dr. Kelsey Martin) gets to remain along theirs fascinating images and explanations, at the visual media on demand at Neuronline’s website. Emphatically, my personal recommendation for those who are interested in Gene Expression, Gene Regulation and Signal Transduction - among plenty of other subtopics - resides on specific articles’ explanations now found at the recording. In fact, back to the though-provoking aspect of the entire webinar as a unit, I’m correlating further discussions - imperative to us in Science - and, specifically, to those passionate about Interdisciplinary. Not a mere and pure synthesis of what was presented during an hour of a day in February, my final clarification on the content - just read above - allows this text to be transformed as an interpretation for the “fire starter" (of thoughts and reflection) given by the presenter. Starting at the creative universe of Literature, Dr Martin travelled through Community Service, Medicine and Political-Economical-Cultural reflections, all the up to her an increase of women participating into Science. In this context, I transcribe a bit of some emotions felt: passion (for real impacts on society); courage (towards the unknown at each new responsibility being a leader, a researcher, a doctor or a volunteer); curiosity (to pursue the interaction of new areas has to offer at its best), and so on. Summarising, research production - shall it be emphasised - became greater and stronger from the webinar to beyond, not because of resident, nor due to the title of the event, neither in synchronicity with the Leadership Roles and the Philanthropy. In fact, a new perspective took Dr. Martin on her way to brilliant achievements and gave outstanding motivation for us here: passionate about Neuroscience.

    International Love Data Week 2023

    Today's installment focuses on infrastructure, specifically on data repositories and scientific gateways for neuroscience research. FAIR requires that the necessary infrastructure in the form of web-accessible repositories is available for publishing research objects: data, code, and workflows; moreover, these repositories should support FAIR and implement basics such as persistent identifiers, programmatic access, and clear licenses. Instead of providing you with an exhaustive list of neuroscience-specific infrastructures that support FAIR, I thought that I would provide you with a list of resources to help you find and select suitable infrastructures for your research. A benefit of the resources listed below is that they all allow community contribution; so if you do not see your preferred infrastructure indexed, you can submit it! Today's tips: Checklist for data repositories and scientific gateways developed by the INCF Infrastructure Committee. It is a living document that is intended to serve as both recommendations for infrastructure developers for setting-up and running a repository or scientific gateway and as a checklist of attributes that should be considered when selecting a repository of scientific gateway for your research The FAIR Infrastructure Portfolio developed by the INCF provides you with guidance in selecting the best infrastructure for your data type, analysis, and sharing needs. The portfolio is intended to help you find the best infrastructure for your particular neuroscience data and offers more detailed neuroscience related metadata (modalities, file format, services offered, etc...) than what is typically available in general repository registries FAIRsharing. In addition to the database of standards and best practices, FAIRsharing also maintains a registry for databases that aims to guide users in discovering, selecting, and using its content with confidence. Similar to its database of standards and best practices, it registry of databases covers a wide variety of disciplines including neuroscience
