An article about the analysis of human epilepsy data has just appeared in PNAS and is also available under the publications link. It indicates that an imbalance in inhibition/excitation is a secondary effect and not the primary cause of epileptic seizures.
I just started a part time position at Seoul National University in the newly formed Department for Brain and Cognitive Sciences. I am heading a lab in Computational Neuroscience and am currently recruiting PostDocs and PhD students (see Jobs page).
Newcastle University has been awarded a Wellcome-Trust 4-year PhD programme in Systems Neuroscience. Directors of the programme are Prof. Miles Whittington, Dr Marcus Kaiser (initiator of the proposal) and Prof. Tim Griffith. The aim of the programme is to train students from physics, computer science, engineering, and mathematics to perform research in experimental neuroscience and data analysis. The first year provides introductory courses in neuroscience and three lab rotations. Studentships will be advertised later this year and the first students will start in October 2008. More information about the studentships is available here.
An article on how to construct the global network topology from local features has been published in BMC Systems Biology and is available under the publications link. We predict connections based on spatial and topological features in the macaque cortical and C. elegans neuronal network.
