Changing the Face of Neuroscience: Are Stem Cells Really Required to Heal a Spinal Cord Injury About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
University neuroscience researcher are uncovering how biological timing systems, like circadian clocks, control brain functions. This research provides insights about synchronization that can positively effect peoples health and well being. Why are heart attacks likely to strike before dawn, while asthmatic attacks generally occur after sunset? Why do we most often feel lethargic during short, dark days of winter, and more energetic in the long, sunny days of summer? The answer to each of these questions lies in understanding the role of the brain's clock in organizing our body functions around the external world, the daily cycle of darkness and light. Circadian clocks impose order on cells, tissues and organs, modulating body processes over the day-night cycle. This research has important applications: Malfunctioning of the brain's circadian clock results in disorders in brain and organ function, which cause disorders in sleep, brain degeneration and diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. It is hoped that the research performed today may someday prevent diseases and provide strategies for minimizing sleep and cognitive disorders.

This is part 1 of a 7-part talk Presented by James Giordano Ph.D, M.Phil., Director of the Center for Neurotechnology Studies, and Chair of Academic Programs at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, Arlington, VA. The field of neuroscience has achieved considerable insight to the workings of the brain. While the most essential question how brains produce consciousness and mind remains enigmatic, what is becoming increasingly evident is that even simple brains enable a variety of complex functions including the capacity to think, feel pain and be self-aware. Thus, it appears that if an organism has the neurological wetware that is, a brain of some sort it is likely, if not probable that they will be able to run a program that produces a mind. In this lecture, Dr. James Giordano, a neuroscientist and neuroethicist, argues that the cornerstone question is not if other organisms have a mind, but what kind of mind they have. He discusses whether neuroscience and technology can provide some insight to philosopher Thomas Nagels metaphorical query, what is it like to be a bat? In other words, now that science has privileged a realization that non-human minds can exist, will technology allow us to know what it is like to be another being, and what can we -or perhaps more importantly, should we do with such knowledge? Dr. Giordano discusses key questions and issues that have arisen in, and from modern neuroscience, including: Do all brains give rise to minds?; Do all minds give ...

The War on Neuroscience : Part 2 Split Brains, Split Souls Part 1 is here: www.youtube.com Part 3 is here: www.youtube.com Audio segments used for this part were taken from a couple other youtube videos featuring VS Ramachandran, a neurologist who is the Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition and a professor in the Psychology Department and Neurosciences Program at the University of California, San Diego. And also neuroscientist Michael Gazzaniga who did the original work on split brains: VS Ramachandran at Beyond Belief 2006 www.youtube.com Soul Searching 1 www.youtube.com The "Soul Searching" video is an extract from a documentary that discussed whether there was still a meaning to the idea of the soul. It's not really friendly to neuroscience but it becomes obvious that those who complain about what neuroscience is discovering have nothing but very vacuous ideas of a soul or spirit to counter it with. Michael Gazzaniga's research, done over 40 years ago, also resulted in a tentative theory about "the self" and the "location of the self" in the brain. It was one of the first glimpses of how we are capable of lying to ourselves in order to maintain an illusion of a rational self driving our choices. Many other psychology experiments have also challenged the ideas we have about free will, consciousness and this illusion of a soul since then.

Emotions color our everyday individual existence and shape all aspects of our interpersonal and intellectual experiences. In this film, animations and fMRI images introduce students to what we now know about the sub-cortical emotional circuits in the brain and chemical processes that produce our emotional responses and contribute to our decision making and mental health. Live action sequences, both in laboratory and real life situations, illustrate Dr. Knutsons research on risk taking and provide intriguing examples of the factors involved in the interplay of affect and reason in making choices. This film is the most recent addition to an important documentary film series on neuroscience form Davidson Films. Further information on the series can be found at www.davidsonfilms.com

Neuroscience has contributed to the understanding of the neural bases of emotion, emotion regulation, and emotional intelligence, and has begun to elucidate the brain mechanisms involved in emotion processing. Of great interest is the degree to which these mechanisms demonstrate neuroplasticity in both anatomical and functional ...

Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science University Professor Professor of Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Neuroscience and Psychology Director, USC Brain Project Research Topics Computational and cognitive neuroscience Mirror neurons and action recognition Brain mechanisms of language and their evolution Epistemology Neural networks Simulation Schema theory Neuroinformatics Research Overview The thrust of Michael Arbib's work is expressed in the title of his first book, Brains, Machines and Mathematics (McGraw-Hill, 1964). The brain is not a computer in the current technological sense, but he has based his career on the argument that we can learn much about machines from studying brains, and much about brains from studying machines. He has thus always worked for an interdisciplinary environment in which computer scientists and engineers can talk to neuroscientists and cognitive scientists. His primary research focus is on the coordination of perception and action. This is tackled at two levels: via schema theory, which is applicable both in top-down analyses of brain function and human cognition as well as in studies of machine vision and robotics; and through the detailed analysis of neural networks, working closely with the experimental findings of neuroscientists on humans and monkeys. He is also engaged in research on the evolution of brain mechanisms for human language, pursuing the Mirror System Hypothesis that links ...
