Modeling protein interactions and assembly with single-particle reaction-diffusion in solution and the membrane – 2/23/2015

Dr. Margaret Johnson Department of Biophysics Johns Hopkins University We recently developed a free-propagator reweighting (FPR) algorithm that solves reaction-diffusion (RD) dynamics of systems at single particle resolution both accurately and efficiently. The full spatio-temporal resolution of this RD method allows us to model complex biological systems where details like spatial gradients or particle assembly […]

Neuromorphic Applications And Neurorobotics: A Large-Scale Cortical Model For Visually Guided Navigation – 3/2/2015

Jeffrey L. Krichmar Department of Cognitive Sciences Department of Computer Science University of California, Irvine Abstract. Neuromorphic engineering takes inspiration from biology to design brain-like systems that are extremely low-power, fault-tolerant, and capable of adaptation to complex environments. The field of neurorobotics has grown into an exciting area of research and engineering. The common goal is twofold: 1) Developing systems that demonstrate some level of cognitive […]

Limbic System Development Underlying the Emergence of Classical Fear Conditioning in the Rat – 3/16/2015

Dr. Michael A. Burman, Assistant Professor Dept. of Psychology & Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences University of New England   Fear and anxiety disorder have a lifetime incidence of over 25% of the population.  Although the neural circuitry involved in fear conditioning in mature organisms is well understood, the development of these circuits is […]

Imaging Life at High Spatiotemporal Resolution 3/23/2015

Dr. Eric Betzig Group Leader, Janelia Research Campus, HMMI Co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry   As our understanding of biological systems as increased, so has the complexity of our questions and the need for more advanced optical tools to answer them. For example, there is a hundred-fold gap between the resolution of […]

Complexity and the Art of Public Policy – 4/6/2015

Dr. David Colander College Professor, Department of Economics Middlebury College Much of the discussion of complexity focuses on the science of complexity. In this talk I will focus on the implications of complexity for public policy–how the advances in complexity science changes the way economists frame policy. I begin by reviewing how the economics profession […]
