22 November, 2018 - SWC Seminar: Dr Yang Dan

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Dr Yang Dan, University of California, Berkeley. Talk Title: In search of sleep neurons in the mammalian brain. Host: Yoh Isogai, Group Leader. Abstract: A major challenge in understanding the neural circuits controlling sleep is to identify sleep neurons. Using anatomical tracing, gene profiling, activity-dependent genetic labeling and functional testing, we have identified multiple groups of sleep neurons in the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. I will summarize these recent studies and propose a new model for sleep control. No need to book, just turn up!

13 December, 2018 - CDB seminar: Engineering neurogenesis for the postnatal brain

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: : Professor Benedikt Berninger (https://devneuro.org/cdn/people-detail.php?personID=2086). Title: Engineering neurogenesis for the postnatal brain. Host: Richard Poole. Abstract: We explore the possibilities of generating new neurons where natural neurogenesis has ceased to occur, such as the postnatal or adult cerebral cortex. The approach we have taken is of lineage reprogramming glia or other brain-resident cells into induced neurons. Toward this end, we force the expression of developmentally relevant transcription factors to induce a neurogenic program. In this talk, I will discuss our efforts (1) to induce neurogenesis from glial cells in the postnatal mouse cortex in vivo, and (2) to decipher the molecular and cellular trajectory of adult human brain pericytes undergoing conversion into neurons.

Time: 18:00:00 - 20:00:00

CRAE is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a charity evening celebrating autistic people in the arts. For this extra special event, we are incredibly excited to welcome world-renowned concert pianist, Derek Paravicini. Derek is blind, autistic and has severe learning difficulties and is one of the most extraordinary pianists and musical entertainers of his generation, rapidly learning musical pieces simply by listening to them. Derek will be joined on stage by Professor Adam Ockelford, Director of the Applied Music Research Centre at the University of Roehampton, whose research focuses on educational needs and music for those with disabilities. Autistic artist, Patrick Samuel will also be live-drawing the performance and his artworks will be on display in the foyer throughout the evening for guests to enjoy at their leisure. The evening will be hosted by CRAE's very own current Artist-in-Residence, Ali Northcott.

13 December, 2018 - SWC Special Lecture: Professor Daniel Dennett

Time: 12:00:00 - 13:00:00

We are delighted to confirm that this year’s ‘Special Lecture’ will be delivered by Professor Daniel Dennett: "Answering the Hard Question by Composing the Inner Witness". Daniel is an American philosopher, writer, and cognitive scientist whose research centers on the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and philosophy of biology, particularly as those fields relate to evolutionary biology and cognitive science. Since publishing his landmark thesis Content and Consciousness in 1969, he has been a key voice connecting empirical and theoretical work in neuroscience and artificial intelligence to a materialist philosophy of mind. Daniel argues that while libertarian free will is an illusion we have some "elbow room" in our experience of freedom. His most recent book is Bacteria to Bach and Back, a continuation of his physical conception of consciousness imaged through an evolutionary lens.
