Symposium 2019: Brain Oscillations in Parkinson’s Disease

Maya Henry PhD

Maya Henry (UT Austin) talks to us about her imaging studies of patients suffering from primary progressive aphasias, what they tell us about speech and language networks, and how her rehabilitation studies are demonstrating speech gains for patients with an otherwise poor degenerative prognosis. Duration: 39 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Salma Quraishi (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Todd Troyer (Assoc Prof, UTSA) Nicole Wicha (Assoc Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Brian Kaspar PhD

Brian Kaspar (AveXis Inc) talks about the realities and promise of building a single dose gene transfer therapy for treating the prime gene defect in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type I. He discusses his company’s modified adeno-associated virus 9 approach to human gene therapy that is currently in highly promising clinical trials, for SMA, and in development for Rett syndrome and one variant of Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis. Duration: 45 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Jenny Hsieh (Semmes Foundation Chair, UTSA) Salma Quraishi (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Catharine Winstanley PhD

Catharine Winstanley (UBC Vancouver) discusses mechanisms of impulsive and poor decision making in gambling and its intersection with mechanisms of disparate drugs of abuse, addiction and relapse. The group considers whether addiction is a single disease, and whether catecholamine systems are the final common pathway for various addiction trajectories. (apologies for some uneven sound, it’s worth roughing it out!) Duration: 46 minutes Discussants:(in alphabetical order) Salma Quraishi (Res Asst Prof, UTSA) Carlos Paladini (Professor, UTSA) Matt Wanat (Asst Prof, UTSA) Charles Wilson (Ewing Halsell Chair, UTSA) acknowledgement: JM Tepper for original music.

Future Frameworks in Theoretical Neuroscience Workshop, Part 2

This episode is a panel discussion recorded as the conclusion of a two part series showcasing Present & Future Frameworks in Theoretical Neuroscience, an international workshop hosted by Horacio Rotstein (NJIT) & Fidel Santamaria (UTSA) through support of NSF’s Brain Initiative (see episode 194 for Part I). Part II is a round table with a new group that recaps the themes of the workshop and reports on the main themes of the discussions that occurred in each of the five workgroups. Many trainees were involved in the workshop, and two of them join the panel to highlight the value and necessity of fresh voices to any discussion about the future of theoretical neuroscience. Workshop co-organizer Fidel Santamaria leads the panel.

Future Frameworks in Theoretical Neuroscience Workshop, Part 2

Future Frameworks in Theoretical Neuroscience Workshop, Part I

This episode is a panel discussion recorded as Part I of a two part series on the recent Present & Future Frameworks in Theoretical Neuroscience, an international workshop hosted by Horacio Rotstein (NJIT) & Fidel Santamaria (UTSA) with support from the NSF’s Brain Initiative. Part I is a preamble recorded on day one of the meeting, in which some friends of the podcast (see below) define the need for the workshop and identify their objectives as they undertake their workgroups. Hosted by Salma Quraishi. Stay tuned for Part II, which was recorded at the close of the workshop. Part II will be posted separately as a follow up to summarize some of the critical discussions that transpired in the workgroups. Duration: 33 minutes Panel:(in alphabetical order, pictured left to right) Veronica Alvarez, Senior Investigator, IRP NIAAA Alain Destexhe, Research Director, CNRS Paris Tatiana Engel, Assistant Professor, CSHL Horacio Rotstein, Professor, NJIT David Redish, Distinguished McKnight Pr...
