The Projective Consciousness Model (PCM) (Rudrauf et al, 2017) is an attempt to unify psychology computationally, with the broadest possible explanatory power about a multiplicity of phenomena and behaviours, from perception, imagination, appraisal, emotion, social cognition, motivation, and action. The PCM advances previous formulations of active inference by featuring an explicit psychological and cybernetic model ...

Pathological protein aggregates are a central hallmark of all neurodegenerative diseases. In the related disorders ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and FTD (frontotemporal dementia), the pathological aggregates consist mostly of the ubiquitous RNA-binding proteins TDP-43 or FUS. Both proteins are usually located in the nucleus, whereas in neurons and glial cells of ALS/FTD patients, they are ...

With this symposium, we aim to facilitate discussion between leading neuroscientists and roboticists interested in discovering algorithms for selecting and executing actions. The speakers will describe state-of-the-art studies investigating action selection, decision-making, motor control, cognition, active sensing, and multimodal integration in flies, rodents, models, and robots.

Lesions of the hypothalamus severely impair motor and cognitive functions, indicating a critical role for hypothalamus in these processes. However, underlying circuits and neural dynamics are poorly understood. The hypothalamus contains several genetically-distinct classes of brain-wide projecting neurons, such are orexin and melanin-concentrating-hormone neurons, which co-release these neuropeptides with GABA or glutamate. We have been ... Read more about "BMI SEMINAR // Hypothalamic circuits for cognition and action"

In associative fear learning, experimental subjects learn to associate a neutral sensory cue or context with an aversive stimulus and display fear responses to the cue or context that predicts danger. Recent studies have identified memory engram cells, a population of neurons that is activated by associative fear learning and whose reactivation results in fear ...

Huntington's disease (HD), the most common dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorder is characterized by a progressive striatal and cortical neurodegeneration associated with cognitive and behavioral disturbance. So far, many are the aberrant molecular mechanisms described to be associated with the disease, however much remains to be defined. In the last decade, perturbed metabolism of gangliosides, glycosphingolipids ... Read more about "BMI SEMINAR // Sphingolipid metabolism: new perspectives for treating Huntington's disease"

Beaucoup de professions sont choisies uniquement par les hommes. C’est le cas en particulier pour les métiers dans la technique etl’informatique, dans lesquels le pourcentagede femmes se situe autour de 20%, parfois à moins de 10%. Les femmes en minorité Pourquoi les jeunes filles talentueuses choisissent-elles trop rarement des métiers techniques ? Comment les gagner ...
