Robotic gait training to improve locomotion after spinal cord injury: Translations between rodent models and clinical practice – 10/6/2014

Dr. Nathan Neckel Research Assistant Professor Department of Neuroscience Department of Rehabilitation Medicine Georgetown University Physical therapy is a grueling process usually met with limited gains and quickly reached plateaus of recovery. Many robotic devices have been incorporated into the clinic because they provide a highly repeatable and accurate training experience while lessening the burden […]

Modeling brain circuitry over a wide range of scales – 11/10/2014

Dr. Pascal Fua École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne   Electron microscopes (EM) can now provide the nanometer resolution that is needed to image synapses, and therefore connections, while Light Microscopes (LM) see at the micrometer resolution required to model the 3D structure of the dendritic network. Since both the arborescence and the connections are integral […]

Tools for Mapping Brain Computations – 12/1/2014

Dr. Ed Boyden Associate Professor MIT Media Lab and McGovern Institute Departments of Biological Engineering and Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT   The brain is a densely and precisely wired circuit made of heterogeneous cells, which themselves are complex computational devices made of an incredible repertoire of molecules. Our group develops tools for mapping, recording […]
