BMI SEMINAR // Vittorio Maglione - Sphingolipid metabolism: new perspectives for treating Huntington's disease
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 ...

To understand the cellular basis of behavior, it is necessary to know the cell types that exist in the nervous system and their contributions to function. Spinal networks are essential for sensory processing and motor behavior and provide a powerful system for identifying the cellular correlates of behavior. We sought to leverage the recent revolution ... Read more about "Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Single Nucleus Sequencing in the Spinal Cord"

Abstract The voting and election processes are the backbone of Swiss democracy and threats to those processes are not to be taken lightly. For this reason, the Federal Chancellery introduced new rules and requirements on Internet Voting systems back in 2014, defining thresholds on the availability of Internet Voting, subjected to three increasing compliance levels. ...

Endocannabinoids have been well established as regulators of the neurobehavioral response to stress. This talk will focus on highlighting the neural circuits and mechanisms by which endocannabinoids have been found to modulate both neuroendocrine and behavioral responses to stress, with an emphasis on translational implications of these findings to human populations afflicted with stress-related neuropsychiatric ...

BMI SEMINAR // Gioele La Manno - RNA velocity of single cells to unveil the developmental dynamics of the nervous system
An ambitious goal of single-cell analyses is to describe dynamical biological processes and shed light on gene regulation. However, the destructive nature of transcriptomics measurements constitutes an immediate challenge to this purpose. To overcome this fundamental limit, we present a novel method capable of estimating “RNA velocity”: the time derivative of gene expression. We apply ...

BMI SEMINAR // Stephan Klaas - Translational Neuromodeling, Computational Psychiatry and Computational Psychosomatics
For many brain diseases, particularly in psychiatry, we lack clinical tests for differential diagnosis and cannot predict optimal treatment for individual patients. This presentation outlines a translational neuromodeling framework for inferring subject-specific mechanisms of brain disease from non-invasive measures of behaviour and neuronal activity. Guided by clinical theories of maladaptive cognition and aberrant brain-body interactions, ...
