The Allen Institute for Brain Science today announced the release of the Allen Brain Observatory: a highly standardized survey of cellular-level activity in the mouse visual system. This dynamic tool empowers scientists to investigate how circuits in the behaving mouse brain coordinate to drive activity and perception, and lays a crucial foundation for understanding perception, cognition and ultimately consciousness. “The Allen Institute is known for our atlases—deep, high quality data sets revealing where genes are expressed and how cells and connections are arranged in the mouse and human brain,” says Allan Jones, Ph.D., CEO of the Allen Institute. “With the Allen Brain Observatory, we’ve taken an important leap into measuring natural brain activity as it is actually happening.” The first data release of the Allen Brain Observatory is a survey of neurons in the visual cortex of mice as they respond to the presentation of a variety of visual stimuli, ranging from drifting black and white bars to film clips. The data are presented as part of the suite of Allen Brain Atlas tools in the uniform and shareable Neurodata Without Borders file format, which allows scientists around the world to easily mine and model the data. The mouse, a small rodent, is an important model system often used to understand the far less accessible and far larger human brain. “The Allen Brain Observatory is a stunning window into the visual brain of the mouse,” says Christof Koch, Ph.D., President and Chief Scientific Officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science. “No one has ever taken this kind of standardized approach to surveying the active brain at cellular resolution in order to measure how the brain processes information in real time. This is a milestone in our quest to decode how the brain’s computations give rise to perception, behavior, and consciousness. Just like in astronomy, modelers and theoreticians worldwide can now study this wealth of data using their own analysis tools.” The first data in the Allen Brain Observatory survey four areas in the mouse visual cortex at multiple depths, sampling more than 18,000 neurons in total. The mice were presented with a large variety of visual stimuli to determine the “tuning,” or preference, of each individual cell to visual features like motion and shape orientation, as well as complex images like natural scenes and movies that reveal integrative dynamics of visual processing. The data from thousands of individual cells and populations of cells are presented in a novel visualization format through the Allen Brain Atlas data portal, and are accompanied by analysis tools and access to all raw data, which allows scientists to deeply explore the rules that govern how networks of cells in the visual cortex communicate. More than 100 people at the Allen Institute were involved in the creation of the Allen Brain Observatory, from animal care technicians to neuroscientists, engineers, microscopy experts, optical physiologists, physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists. “The Allen Brain Observatory is a very exciting and valuable data resource for the computational and systems neuroscience community to explore the function of the primary visual cortex,” says David J. Anderson, Ph.D., Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator at the California Institute of Technology. “The Allen Institute is uniquely equipped to provide this freely accessible resource, given the interdisciplinary teamwork involved and the large scale of the project. The web interface makes the data accessible and usable for the broader scientific community.” “Both the data and their presentation, with the extensive documentation and software development kit, are beautifully done in the Allen Brain Observatory,” says Michael Stryker, Ph.D. Professor of Physiology in the Center for Integrative Neuroscience at the University of California, San Francisco. “I predict the community will find this resource extremely useful and look forward to seeing the developments that emerge.” Understanding visual processing is a key gateway to understanding how other parts of the brain process information, and future releases of the Allen Brain Observatory will also explore the neural circuits that underlie more complex behaviors like decision-making. “If we want to understand higher-order brain functions, we need to understand not just the individual components of the brain but how they all work together,” says Koch. “The Allen Brain Observatory is an essential resource to explore how individual neurons—the atoms of perception—work together to give rise to the deepest, most meaningful aspects of experience.”

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Center for Global Security Research (CGSR) sponsored this talk entitled "Brain Science from Bench to Battlefield: The Realities – and Risks – of Neuroweapons” by Dr. James Giordano on June 12, 2017. Abstract: The use of sarin gas in Syria and the nerve agent VX to assassinate Kim Jong-nam, and ongoing efforts in brain science by both nations and non-state actors (inclusive of a growing community of do-it-yourself/biohacker scientists) prompt renewed interest in the current and near-term possibilities of developing and employing neuroweapons. Discourse at the most recent meeting of Biological, Toxin, and Weapons Convention (BTWC), and ongoing efforts of a Working Group of the European Union Human Brain Project reinforced the need to more rigorously address research and use of weaponizable brain science. In this briefing, neuroscientist and neuroethicist Dr. James Giordano of Georgetown University Medical Center discusses how new developments in brain science afford potential utility in military, intelligence and warfare operations, addresses implications of neuroweapons, and details the need for improved identification, surveillance, guidance and governance of brain science that can be used in military and warfare applications, and thus pose defined risk and threat to security interests. Dr. James Giordano is Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Biochemistry, Chief of the Neuroethics Studies Program, and Co-director of the O'Neill-Pellegrino Program in Brain Science and Global Health Law and Policy at the Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC. He is a Senior Researcher and Task Leader of the Working Group on Dual-Use of the EU Human Brain Project, and has served as a Senior Science Advisory Fellow of the Strategic Multilayer Assessment group of the Joint Staff of the Pentagon.

The Science of Brain Health and Cognitive Decline Watch the newest video from Big Think: 🤍 Join Big Think Edge for exclusive videos: 🤍 "Lifelong learning is extremely important," says Nobel laureate Dr. Eric Kandel, "and the more we learn about life span the more important we realize it is." As people age, they're susceptible to two kinds of cognitive decline. One is Alzheimer's disease, and the other is Age Related Memory Loss (ARML). These operate very differently, and while Alzheimer’s is still an urgent mystery for scientists to unlock, researchers have found that ARML can be prevented, and to some degree even reversed, says neuropsychiatrist Dr. Eric Kandel. Things that can prevent and even wind back ARML are social involvement, learning new skills, learning a foreign language, physical exercise, a good diet and good health, and in the more micro view, a hormone called osteocalcin, which acts on the brain to enhance memory storage. Dr. Kandel explains the intricacies of this hormone, how to increase it, and the intriguing experiment that led to this realization. Eric Kandel's most recent book is Reductionism in Art and Brain Science. ERIC KANDEL : Dr. Eric Kandel is University Professor and Fred Kavli Professor and Director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Science at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. His most recent book is The Age of Insight: The Quest to Understand the Unconscious in Art, Mind, and Brain, from Vienna 1900 to the Present. Kandel's research has shown that learning produces changes in behavior by modifying the strength of connections between nerve cells, rather than by altering the brain's basic circuitry. He went on to determine the biochemical changes that accompany memory formation, showing that short-term memory involves a functional modulation of the synapses while long-term memory requires the activation of genes and the synthesis of proteins to grow new synaptic connections. For this work, the Austrian-born Kandel was awarded the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. TRANSCRIPT : Eric Kandel: There are two major forms of learning: implicit or explicit or declarative and non-declarative. The simple form of learning, which I studied in Aplysia, which holds true for all invertebrate animals, is learning of perceptual and motor skills. More complex learning involves the hippocampus requires conches participation and it involves learning about people, places and objects. So two different systems, implicit learning, which does not involve conscious participation, involves a number of systems in the brain. In the simplest cases just reflects pathways themselves, but in other cases it could involve the amygdala for emotional learning, the basal ganglia for some motor tasks. So these are a variety of systems, but the hippocampus is not in any fundamental way involved. In the learning of people places and objects it involves conscious participation and it involves the hippocampus. The hippocampus is not critical throughout the lifetime of the memory, but it's critical for the initial storing and consolidation of the memory. So these are two very fundamental systems. Mammals have them both, invertebrate animals only have one. Life long learning is extremely important and the more we learn about life span the more important we realize it is. First of all it's pleasurable. Most people after a while realize when they acquire new knowledge about something that it's really quite an enjoyable experience. But also it's like doing exercise, in fact it's exercise of the brain. It's good for you. So as people age they're susceptible to one of two kinds of cognitive declines. One is Alzheimer's disease, which begins in the 70s but becomes almost an epidemic when people are in their 90s when almost have the populations has Alzheimer's disease. And the other, which was only recently appreciated to be quite distinct from Alzheimer's disease, is called age related memory loss. The difference between Alzheimer's disease in the sense that it starts earlier, it starts in mid life; it involves a different part of the brain it starts in the dentate gyrus, Alzheimer's disease starts in the entorhinal cortex. And it is prevented. You can prevent it. And also to some degree you might be able to reverse it. Read the full transcript at 🤍

How your brain FUNCTIONS is anchored by the maps of your previous experience (it’s is highly customized by experience as a child). You can rewire your brain at ANY age of life, below I will share a couple scientifically proven methods: 1. Persistence, intensity & subjective importance of acquiring the skill : In order to modify our brain, something has to be persistent enough (practice aka reps!), or intense enough (inversely related to the number of learning bouts required), or important enough (subjective but yes, we have to chemically register the importance of learning; even if that event is not by choice to force the circuitry into a new configuration). 2. Very focused deliberate effort: strain & agitation is an important part of learning! This is the brain queuing up systems in the brain stem - the effort process doesn’t feel good - BUT that agitation is you getting better! We can associate a sense of reward with this process & leverage it to our advantage. 3. Chunking: a way of dealing with or remembering info by separating it into small groups or chunks: By grouping each data point into a larger whole - or by breaking larger amounts of info into smaller units, you can improve the amount of information you can remember. We can start by: Identifying similarities or patterns; organizing the information; then grouping information into manageable units (e.g., phone numbers, social security numbers & DOB are all a list of numbers that are broken down into 3 separate parts!). Chunking can be used as an everyday memory enhancer, but researchers have also found that you can improve your ability to effectively chunk information (more practice = more efficiency). #MEDspiration MEDspired by: Dr. Eric Knudsen & Dr. Andrew Huberman ©08/28/2022 - #neuroscience #neuroplasticity #neurociencia #braincells #brainhealth #growthmindset #growthmindset🌱 #neuroplasticity #neuroplasticidade #medicalscience #science #sciencebitch #medschool #neurons #neuroscientist #brainscience #brainscience #scientistsofinstagram
This video looks at how the brain can adapt to different situations. It explores why we can lose control of our emotions and how to get back on track. About Jodie Wassner Jodie Wassner is an Educational and Developmental Psychologist with over 25 years experience counselling young people and their families in Melbourne and Sydney. She divides her professional time equally between clinic work with young people and educational training for psychologists and other health professionals, via local and international workshops, as well as supervision for psychologists and provisional psychologists worldwide. Jodie completed her Masters of Psychology (Educational and Developmental) degree at Monash University. She went on to spend the next fifteen years working as a school psychologist in Primary and Secondary schools, followed by 10 years in private practice focusing on young people and their families. She is especially familiar with the issues that are likely to emerge across the developmental period and has extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, autism spectrum conditions, attention deficits, learning difficulties, grief, anger, family conflict, bullying, sleep disturbance, stress management, social skills, school refusal, eating disturbance and OCD. Her two professional passions are neurodiversity (particularly autism and attention deficits) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Clinic Work Jodie runs a busy private practice in Sydney and will be relocating to Melbourne late 2021. She works predominantly with autism, anxiety, OCD and ADHD. Jodie has always had a knack for connecting with young people. She harbours a genuine love for kids and teens and treats them with compassion and understanding from the outset. Young people and their families often comment that they feel safe and understood in Jodie's care. She has a particular reputation for helping dozens of families in her clinic to navigate the challenges of autism as well as embrace the strengths and passions that accompany neurodiversity. Workshops Jodie is a seasoned presenter and has delivered countless workshops to health professionals, schools and the community. She is a workshop facilitator for several highly respected organisations including the Black Dog Institute and Learning Links. She has also presented her own work at several conferences including The Australian Psychological Society, Body Image and Better Health Inc. in conjunction with VicHealth, Association for Contextual Behavioural Sciences and Shire Australia Clinical Insights: Modern Management of ADHD- Building the Therapeutic Alliance. Jodie has co-written a ten-session manual for psychologists working with anxious children using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Jodie is President of the International Autism and ACT ACBS group and is a Fellow of the APS College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists.
Scientists are becoming increasingly aware of how life experiences can change both the physical structure and the function of the brain. Since a discovery in the mid-1990's that the hippocampus—a brain region important for memory—is reduced in size in many combat veterans, research has exploded over how traumatic events can affect different regions of the brain. This story highlights recent work by Victor Carrion's team at the Stanford University Early Life Stress Research Program that shows how adverse events in childhood can make an early mark on brain function.
This web series, Science of Addiction, is hosted by research analyst Reisto Belovich. In this episode, he will be breaking down the basics of the science behind what addiction does to the brain,, from the prefrontal cortex to the limbic system to the midbrain. In this video we learn what Dopamine is, how it works in the brain, and how psychoactive substances affect this neurotransmitter. “Before we can understand the full sway of addiction, it would make sense for us to understand the primary areas of the brain that are affected by addiction,” Belovich said. The brain controls our entire body through electrical stimulus that allows us to think, feel, move, breathe, speak, and every other minute motion the body goes through. When it comes to addiction, there are three areas primarily associated with addiction.

A recent study led by neuroscientists at France's National Institute of Health and Medical Research has found that learning to read—no matter at what age—reorganizes the brain's neural networks. What's more, their findings suggest that literacy may improve the ability to understand spoken language.
Parts of the Brain-Middle School Science 25 Facts about the lobes of the brain 🤍 Cerebrum Top part of the brain and the cerebrum is separated into four lobes. Temporal,parietal,occipital, and the frontal Cerebellum also called the little brain Controls coordination, balance, and helps us talk and walk Temporal Lobe Helps us process sounds, in other words, helps us hear. Also helps some with balance. Parietal Lobe It is called the “association lobe” It communicates with other lobes.The parietal lobe is where information such as taste, temperature, and touch are integrated, or processed. Occipital lobe This lobe is responsible for processing your vision Frontal lobe Is responsible for executive function. This includes memory, impulse control, your emotions, planning, and organization. The brain stem controls the flow of messages between the brain and the rest of the body, and it also controls basic body functions such as breathing,, heart rate, and blood pressure, You may also enjoy...

Psychology instructor and researcher Christina Costa was working on her PhD when she was referred to get an MRI and discovered a large brain tumor in her right temporal lobe that was later diagnosed as grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma. In this talk, Christina connects her experience of living with brain cancer to her field of study and explains why tools of gratitude can increase our well-being and what is happening in our brains when we experience and express gratitude. You can find Christina on Instagram 🤍ms.christinacosta and her book ‘Kiss Your Brain’: Diagnosis Diaries can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Christina Costa is a PhD Psychology Candidate at the University of Michigan. She researches the psychology of well-being in addition to teaching undergraduate psychology and is specifically interested in well-being for teachers and the science of gratitude. Last year, Christina was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma, a rare and severe brain tumor. Christina has used gratitude as a tool to help maintain her personal well-being throughout her treatment. In her talk, Christina shares some of the lessons she has learned through her research and experience about the power of gratitude in her life, and how it can be used to change yours. She holds a B.A. and M.S. from the University of Michigan. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at 🤍
