The Workshop on the Dynamic Brain is a… joint program between UW and the Allen Institute… where we’re taking students from across the country… to teach them about computational neuroscience techniques… and then have them work on a project… that hopefully has some kind of scientific meaning, but also uses… Continue Reading Brain Waves: Summer camp for neuroscientists

The parasympathetic nervous system is a subdivision of the autonomic nervous system, which is the subdivision of the peripheral nervous system that controls automatic processes in the body like digestion, heart rate, and respiration. The parasympathetic nervous system is typically associated with energy conservation and processes like digestion and elimination… Continue Reading 2-Minute Neuroscience: Parasympathetic Nervous System

[Dmitriy] Just one last thing before I ask you a question. They say, that the healer is the healed so I’m wondering how it started for you and how you started putting it all together made it into something very special did you do [Sarah]approach teasing language and I thought… Continue Reading How NeuroScience Helps Us Understand Our Behavior Better…and Heal with Sarah Peyton

Your brain. It requires delicate treatment. Providence Saint John’s is one of only two West Coast centers where our Pacific Neuroscience Institute physicians participate in a clinical trial with bioengineered precision therapy and minimally invasive surgery to treat the most lethal brain cancers and provide leading edge therapies for aneurysms,… Continue Reading .

The sympathetic nervous system is a subdivision of the autonomic nervous system, which is the subdivision of the peripheral nervous system that controls automatic processes in the body like digestion, heart rate, and respiration. The sympathetic nervous system is typically associated with expending energy and the “fight-or-flight” response, which is… Continue Reading 2-Minute Neuroscience: Sympathetic Nervous System

Neurosciences is the study of how the brain functions and the Neuroscience Center at Children’s Hospital works around the diseases that affect the brain and the functioning of the brain. The good thing about Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Neurosciences Center is think about it like a one-stop shop where in… Continue Reading Neurosciences Center at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin

(bright music) – Why does it hurt so much to feel lonely? And what can we do about it? Scientists are giving us some exciting answers with the help of a tiny worm and a truly unpopular rodent. (gentle music) The worm is called C. elegans, also known as the… Continue Reading Citizen Brain: “The Loneliness Paradox”

– You know it was more than a full time job, being on the road as much as I am. It’s a different kind of life. (EDM music) The toll that you take on your mind and your body, if you’re unprepared, you wouldn’t last very long. (solemn music) I’ve… Continue Reading eSmartr x Steve Aoki | Mindfulness Made Easy

Welcome to Impact Factor, your weekly dose of commentary on a new medical study. I’m Dr. F. Perry Wilson. This week, a novel computer algorithm tries to turn cross-sectional studies into longitudinal ones to give us new insights into neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. The manuscript, appearing in the journal Brain,… Continue Reading Artificial Intelligence Unleashed on the Brain: Using Machine Learning to Predict Alzheimer’s
