Neuroscience 2017
23 65 6474

The human brain is thought to be the most complex object in research. A hundred billion neurons, close to a quadrillion connections between them, and scientists are trying to figure out how it all fits together.  Neuroscience aims to understand how a single organ can control the entire body, from immune response to heart rate, from movement to learning and feeling. Neuroscientists work within a much wider scope than ever before, studying the cellular, functional, evolutionary, computational, molecular, cellular and medical aspects of the nervous system. And with new tools and technologies constantly being developed, the growth of knowledge of the brain is increasing exponentially.

LabRoots is proud to present the 5th Annual world-renowned Neuroscience virtual conference to be broadcasted live March 15-16, 2017.

      • Christos Constantinidis, PhD
        Professor, Wake Forest School of Medicine
        Biography
          Christos Constantinidis is a professor at the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA. He received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, and completed postdoctoral training at Yale University. Research in his laboratory aims to understand how neuronal activity in the cerebral cortex gives rise to cognitive functions, such as working memory. Experiments in recent years have focused on the posterior parietal and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Simultaneous neuronal recordings from multiple micro-electrodes during performance of cognitive tasks are addressing how these areas are functionally organized and how experience and learning modifies the properties of their neurons. Neuronal activity in these areas is also monitored under at different stages of development, particularly focusing on the neural substrates of cognitive maturation between the stages of adolescence and adulthood. Computational and modeling approaches are then employed to understand the neural mechanisms that mediate complex cognitive functions such as the maintenance of a stimulus in working memory.

              • Rowshanak Hashemiyoon, PhD
                Chief, Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory, Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery University Hospital of Cologne
                Biography
                  Dr. Rowshanak Hashemiyoon is the head of the Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory in the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery at the University Hospital of Cologne in Germany. Her work unites scientific research with clinical care. It focuses on identifying the altered network dynamics underlying the dysfunctional brain states of neuropsychiatric and neurologic disorders as well as fosters the development of novel treatments which alleviate the symptoms of these disorders. She is currently involved in the study and development of time- and structure-adapted neuromodulation for disease-tailored treatment. A computational neuroscientist by training, she received her PhD with John Chapin from Hahnemann University in Philadelphia while studying the nonlinear dynamics of oscillatory behavior in the subcortical visual system. After a post-doctoral fellowship with David McCormick at the Yale University School of Medicine where she then studied the dynamics of thalamocortical activity in the somatosensory system during normal and epileptic states, she moved to the Center for Complex Systems in Florida to investigate large-scale human brain dynamics during dyadic interaction. While at the University of Miami, she reported the first longitudinal study in humans of the effects of DBS on the underlying neuropathophysiology in a psychiatric disorder. Her work described the dynamics of neuronal activation in correlation with the symptomatology observed in Tourette syndrome, offering important insights into tic genesis and expression. She has now expanded her work to studying the neuropathomechanisms of whole network dysfunction in a range of psychiatric and movement disorders in humans, including OCD, addiction and Parkinson's disease.
                • Narayanan Kasthuri, PhD
                  Assistant Professor, University of Chicago
                  Biography
                    Dr. Kasthuri is a Neuroscience Researcher at Argonne National Labs and an Assistant Professor (Part-Time) in the Dept. of Neurobiology, University of Chicago. He has an MD from Washington University School of Medicine and a D.Phil. from Oxford University where he studied as a Rhodes scholar. The Kasthuri lab is pioneering new techniques for large volume reconstructions of the fine structure of the nervous system - 'connectomics'. These developments include: large volume automated electron microscopy for mapping neuronal connections, synchrotron source X-ray microscopy to map the cellular composition of entire brains; improving sample preparation in order to increase the efficiency of automated algorithmic tracing of these datasets; and combining electron microscopy with current techniques for interrogating the proteome and the genome. These tools will be applied in the service of answering the question: how do brains change as they grow up? In particular, the lab is interested in how changes in the micro biome affect the structure and the function of developing neurons in the periphery (e.g. in the enteric nervous system) and in the brain.
                  • Richard Lee, PhD
                    Assistant Professor, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
                    Biography
                      Richard Lee is a Johns Hopkins University "lifer." He received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Johns Hopkins University. He was trained in epigenetics under the mentorship of Dr. Andrew Feinberg and completed his postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Currently, he is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry, and his main research interest is in elucidating the epigenetic mechanisms of the HPA axis and neuroendocrine hormones in the context of psychiatric disorders. Exposure to chronic stress is a risk factor for a number of diseases, including psychiatric disorders, and Dr. Lee demonstrated that stress hormones or glucocorticoids can directly alter DNA methylation in vivo. He employs both candidate loci and genome-wide approaches to identify neuronal genes and pathways that are epigenetically affected by stress and glucocorticoids. He has designed and implemented both microarray and sequencing based platforms for genome-wide DNA methylation projects, including the CHARM (Comprehensive High-throughput Arrays for Relative Methylation) platform and the SureSelect Methyl-Seq Target Enrichment System for the rat genome. He is currently refining epigenetic approaches to better study specific neuronal populations by implementing powerful tools in genetics and neuroscience.
