Wilder Penfield, Neural Cartographer
The patient lies on the operating table, with the right side of his body raised slightly. The anaesthetist sterilizes his scalp and injects it with Nupercaine to produce analgesia – the patient wil…
Il rumore di "Dunkirk" - Il Post
Christopher Nolan e Hans Zimmer, regista e autore della colonna sonora, gli hanno dato molta importanza, usando una particolare "illusione acustica"
Woman Can Move Again After a Breakthrough Stroke Treatment
Judy Slater, the first person to undergo deep brain stimulation (DBS) for stroke recovery, is doing far better than doctors expected.
Karl Deisseroth, MD, PhD | HHMI
Karl Deisseroth is focused on developing and applying high-resolution tools for controlling and mapping specific well-defined elements within intact biological systems. Deisseroth and his team develop and then use these and other tools – integrated with optical, electrophysiological, computational, molecular, and behavioral approaches – to study neural physiology and behavior in freely moving mammals. Their ultimate aim is to understand the neural circuit dynamics underlying normal behavior…
Deisseroth Lab, Stanford University
The Deisseroth Lab is part of the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University. We develop and apply tools for controlling and mapping specific elements within intact biological systems. We are interested both in natural behaviorally-relevant neural circuit dynamics, and in pathological dynamics underlying neuropsychiatric disease symptomatology and treatment. This site contains information about the tools we make and use, our members, and our publications.
A Test for Consciousness? | by Riccardo Manzotti | The New York Review of Books
Parks: You can’t prove, scientifically, this idea of experience being buffered or delayed in neural eddies. Manzotti: At this stage, no. Neuroscientists can’t disprove it, or prove that the experience is “generated” in the head. But let’s remember, we do science by forming a hypothesis, making predictions in line with that hypothesis, and inventing experiments that prove or disprove the hypothesis.
