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 ...

Abstract Personal genomics is becoming increasingly popular, but mounting privacy concerns threaten to impede adoption. We propose a new, privacy-focused model for personal genomics that employs cryptography and decentralization to secure personal genomic data and outline various policy issues that should be considered if this model is to be adopted.

Towards the design of molecular materials: from many-body methods to enhanced density functional approximations
New technologies are made possible by new materials, and until recently new materials could only be discovered experimentally. However, approaches based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics are now integrated to many design initiatives in academia and industry, underpinning efforts such as the Materials Genome initiative or the computational crystal structure prediction (CSP ). ...
