22 October, 2018 - CDB Special Seminar - Professor David Prober

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Professor David Prober (http://www.proberlab.caltech.edu). Abstract: Sleep is observed throughout the animal kingdom, but it remains unclear whether sleep evolved independently in vertebrates and invertebrates, and it is largely unknown whether mechanisms identified using model systems are relevant to humans. We use zebrafish, a diurnal vertebrate that combines advantages of mammalian and invertebrate models, to explore genetic and neuronal mechanisms that regulate sleep. I will describe experiments showing that a well-conserved genetic pathway regulates sleep in both invertebrates and vertebrates, including humans, suggesting that it plays a central and ancient role in sleep. I will also describe studies using zebrafish and rodents that address a longstanding controversy over the role of the serotonergic raphe in sleep. Host: Dr Jason Rihel

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

As part of Open Access week, UCL's Research Data Support team will be running a lunchtime session on the most effective ways to share your research data. The first half of the session will give researchers an introduction to the principles and practicalities involved in data sharing. It will also seek to outline the principles of FAIR data and how this relates to the production and use of data over the research lifecycle. During the second half of the session UCL's Research Data Management team and Open Access team will host a drop-in to help answer any questions about sharing research data, Open Access Publishing, RPS or Open Science.

29 October, 2018 - Dementia and Technology: Mental Health Question Time

Time: 18:00:00 - 21:00:00

Technology in dementia: Innovating or isolating? The number of people living with dementia worldwide is forecast to grow from 50 to 130 million by 2050. There are currently no disease modifying treatments available and dementia poses an enormous challenge for society. Could technology provide solutions? Technological approaches have been suggested to help diagnosis and assessment, assist independent living, compensate for some memory and functional difficulties, and provide safe and effective care. Join the public discussion in Mental Health Question Time on Monday 29th October as we bring together, in collaboration with the Economic and Social Research Council, a diverse international panel of clinicians, carers, engineers, and sociologists to discuss the potential for technology to transform dementia care.

30 October, 2018 - UCLPartners Centre for Neurorehabilitation: Clinical Networking event

Time: 17:30:00 - 18:30:00

Neurorehabilitation for young adults: How do we include parenting and spousal roles? More and more young adults are presenting with complex neurological conditions, and commonly their rehabilitation needs to include the return to parenting and spousal roles. This work is often carried out by adult neurological rehabilitation teams who may not be trained in, for example, understanding a child’s needs or perspective. Therapists may be unfamiliar with what parental and spousal roles entail, and added to this, child and adult health and social care services may be disjointed. Using our usual 10-minute presentation format, we invite you to share your experiences of how teams have addressed these challenges. How and when do we involve children in the rehabilitation of their parent? How have we used other sectors – charities / education / social services? Please send your abstracts (up to 100 words) to cnr@ucl.ac.uk by 10th October.

Time: 11:00:00 - 13:00:00

This session is for anyone looking to involve patients in their research. Learn where to go to find people who will get involved, and how to help them remain engaged. The National Institute for Health Research University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with UCLPartners is running a programme of regular award-winning workshops for clinical academic researchers on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research. The workshops, which are supported by the Wellcome Trust and open to researchers working in UCLPartners partnership organisations, are practical and the aim is to build up researchers’ skills in effectively involving lay people in the research process, from setting research priorities to designing protocols. Please note these workshops are for researchers and concern the active involvement of lay people in the research process and are not about the recruitment of participants to a trial.

16 November, 2018 - Brain Meeting

Time: 15:15:00 - 16:15:00

Speaker: Nadine Dijkstra, Donders Centre for Cognition "Envisioning imagination: shared neural mechanisms of visual perception and imagery" Whenever we think about what something looks like that is not there, we use visual imagery. Visual imagery is phenomenologically similar to visual perception: imagining and perceiving a cat both gives rise to the experience of almond-shaped eyes, whiskers and pointy ears. To what extent visual imagery relies on similar neural mechanisms as visual perception has been a topic of debate for decades. During this talk I will present some of our work investigating this question. Our results indicate that imagery and perception rely on similar neural representations in different brain areas and on similar top-down connectivity. The biggest difference between these two forms of visual experience seems to be that the early, bottom-up processing that characterises perception, is absent during imagery.

Aimed at PhD level and beyond, this detailed and comprehensive 4 day course will feature leading names in biomarker research including Profs. William Jagust (University of California Berkeley), John Hardy (UCL), Henrik Zetterberg (UCL/UGot), Kaj Blennow (UGot) and Nick Fox (UCL). We look forward to welcoming delegates from around the world for this unique educational and networking opportunity.
