Dynamical principles underlying octopus body patterning, a visible neural network – 4/3/2017

Khalil Iskarous Department of Linguistics University of Southern California   Abstract: Octopus have about a million sacs of proteins of 3 colors on their skin, and each of these sacs can be opened via a system of radial muscles, making the sac visible, or closed via muscle relaxation, making the sac invisible.. The activity of […]

Using Symmetries of Complex Networks of Oscillators to Find All Synchronization Clusters – 4/24/2017

Louis M. Pecora US Naval Research Laboratory Washington, DC Abstract: Several common physical systems can be modeled as a set of oscillators of some type connected to each other in a complex network. For example, power generators in an electric grid, neurons in brain structures, and gene interactions in cells. Many networks of coupled oscillators […]

G protein signaling, the cytoskeleton and the neurobiology of depression and antidepressants – 5/1/2017

Mark M. Rasenick Distinguished Professor of Physiology & Biophysics and Psychiatry Director, Biomedical Neuroscience Training Program Research Service, Jesse Brown VAMC UIC College of Medicine Abstract: GPCR signaling through heterotrimeric G proteins is regulated both by specialized membrane domains (lipid rafts) and cytoskeletal elements, particularly tubulin and microtubules.  The role of this interaction will be […]
