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 ***yses of brain function and human cognition as well as in studies of machine vision and robotics; and through the detailed ***ysis 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 ...

- Cognitive Neuroscience of Mindfulness Meditation Google Tech Talks February, 28 2008 ABSTRACT Mindfulness meditation, one type of meditation technique, has been shown to enhance emotional awareness and psychological flexibility as well as induce well-being and emotional balance. Scientists have also begun to examine how meditation may influence brain functions. This talk will examine the effect of mindfulness meditation practice on the brain systems in which psychological functions such as attention, emotional reactivity, emotion regulation, and self-view are instantiated. We will also discuss how different forms of meditation practices are being studied using neuroscientific technologies and are being integrated into clinical practice to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. Speaker: Philippe Goldin Philippe is a research scientist and heads the Clinically Applied Affective Neuroscience group in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University. He spent 6 years in India and Nepal studying various languages, Buddhist philosophy and debate at Namgyal Monastery and the Dialectic Monastic Institute, and serving as an interpreter for various Tibetan Buddhist lamas. He then returned to the US to complete a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University. His NIH-funded clinical research focuses on (a) functional neuroimaging investigations of cognitive-affective mechanisms in adults with anxiety disorders, (b) comparing the effects of mindfulness meditation and cognitive-behavioral therapy on brain ...

- Issues in Neuroscience: Social Disabilities. Sort of follows on from Neurodiversity. I define the concept of social disability as how I see it, and talk about my opinions on it. A social disability, in my eyes, is a trait that causes problems due to the society we live in, but if we weren't social animals, and lived alone, wouldn't cause any problem. Some examples I talk about are: - Mutism and deafness - Autism - Tourette syndrome - Friedreich's ataxia Also, what can you do is helping people with social disabilities? But also, how can strange behaviours of a few people affect everyone else around them, or you, personally? Can you help it but to judge others, and do you really mean to cause harm? Bleh, society is complicated! - It's a brain thing, by Dr. Henley. The aim is to fight stigma for brain conditions. One that really got me thinking was the 'addictions' video.

- Neurosciences: The Clock 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.
- The War on Neuroscience - Part 2: Split Brains, Split Souls The War on Neuroscience : Part 2 Split Brains, Split Souls Part 1 is here: Part 3 is here: 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 Soul Searching 1 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.

- The Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience of Categorization, Novelty-Detec... Google Tech Talks November, 15 2007 ABSTRACT Neurocomputational models provide fundamental insights towards understanding the human brain circuits for learning new associations and organizing our world into appropriate categories. In this talk I will review the information-processing functions of four interacting brain systems for learning and categorization: (1) the basal ganglia which incrementally adjusts choice behaviors using environmental feedback about the consequences of our actions, (2) the hippocampus which supports learning in other brain regions through the creation of new stimulus representations (and, hence, new similarity relationships) that reflect important statistical regularities in the environment, (3) the medial septum which works in a feedback-loop with the hippocampus, using novelty-detection to alter the rate at which stimulus representations are updated through experience, (4) the frontal lobes which provide for selective attention and executive control of learning and memory. The computational models to be described have been evaluated through a variety of empirical methodoligies including human functional brain imaging, studies of patients with localized brain damage due to injury or early-stage neurodegenerative diseases, behavioral genetic studies of naturally-occuring individual variability, as well as comparative lesion and genetic studies with rodents. Our applications of these models to engineering and computer science including automated ...

- "Establishing a Global Neuroscience Information Framework" by Maryann E. Martone "Establishing a Global Neuroscience Information Framework" by Maryann E. Martone, Professor-in-Residence, Neurosciences; Center for Research in Biological Systems (CRBS); Co-Director, National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (NCMIR) Understanding the brain strains the limits of current human ingenuity. Perhaps more than any other organ system, the problem of understanding the brain is fundamentally multiscale, with relevant data derived from spatial and temporal scales spanning many orders of magnitude. Because of the complexity and breadth of these networks, unraveling functional circuits underlying complex behaviors or pinpointing the locus of disease processes, even where the genetic defect is known, has confounded scientists, who by the limitations of experimental methods glimpse only a pinhole view of a vast interconnected landscape. Neuroscientists rely heavily on technological advances to expand our capacity to deal with this enormous complexity. Convergent technological revolutions are producing views of the brain of increasing size, breadth and detail, as we acquire data spanning multiple scales across increasing expanses of brain tissue. With the concomitant increase in computing power, the increased data generation is leading to production of ever more realistic computational models, allowing scientists to probe the consequences of the structural and biochemical complexity in ways not amenable to direct experimentation. Although the amount of data is ...

- Part 1 - The Open Questions In Neuroscience Mental phenomena are nothing but phenomena of the physical brain, says Patricia Churchland. It's "an illusion of the brain" to think that we have a "nonphysical soul that does our feeling." But how the brain creates constructs of itself and things in the world remains a major puzzle. For instance, how does a brain "habitually represent goals, plans and projects -- things that don't yet exist?" And what about the huge amount of spontaneous activity in the brain that occurs while we're resting? We don't understand how the "organization of a motor response is achieved," nor how these responses are integrated across sensory systems together with memory. Churchland anticipates a fundamental shift in looking at the brain that will merge philosophical and neurobiological issues. From the MIT "Expand Your Mind: Getting a Grasp on Consciousness" conference. This is Part 1 of 3.
