19 June, 2018 - UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation: a call for speakers for the next Clinical Networking Event

Time: 17:30:00 - 19:00:00

The title is: Using technology to enhance and facilitate rehabilitation We are all aware that time and resources are limited in the current NHS. How can we maximise the intensity of therapy? Do you use apps, robotics, online resources and other technologies to enhance your practice? If so, we are keen to hear from you to share experience and knowledge in this area from each stage of the patient’s journey. If you would like to give an 8-minute talk, please email us by 21st May 2018 at cnr@ucl.ac.uk, providing a brief summary of your talk (up to 100 words). We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

26 June, 2018 - SWC Seminar: Dysregulation and restoration of neuronal circuit activities in Alzheimer models

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

Speaker: Dr Marc Busche, Alzheimer's Disease Research Unit, Harvard Medical School & Massachusetts General Hospital Host: Troy Margrie, Associate Director No need to book, just turn up. Abstract: There is a real urgency to better understand the complexeties of Alzheim's disease, with a population aging and no effective treatments available. Alzheimer is manifest neuropathologically by both amyloid-ß plaques and tau containing neurofibrillary tangles; however, the mechanisms by which those brain lesions initiate and drive the disease remain uncertain. In my talk, I will present data, mostly from in vivo two-photon calcium imaging in mouse models, that show how Alzheimer neuropathology causes massive impairments in neuronal circuit physiology that lead to memory problems – and that such impairments can be reversed only under certain conditions, which has important implications for clinical trials in patients.

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

Title: "Engineering neurogenesis for the postnatal brain” Speaker: Professor Benedikt Berninger - Institute of Physiological Chemistry of the University Medical Centerof the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz Host: Dr 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.

17 October, 2018 - UCL Division of Psychiatry: The computational anatomy of psychosis

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Speaker: Professor Karl J. Friston, Institute of Neurology, UCL Abstract: This talk considers formal or computational approaches to psychopathology. I will use schizophrenia to offer a case study of computational psychiatry. We first review the basic phenomenology and pathophysiological theories of schizophrenia. These motivate the choice of a formal or computational framework within which to understand the symptoms and signs of schizophrenia; particularly, in terms of false beliefs or inference. This framework is the Bayesian brain. We will focus on the (neuromodulatory) encoding of uncertainty or precision within predictive coding implementations of active inference – to demonstrate computational approaches to the nature and pathogenesis of hallucinations and delusions.
