New publication from Rune Rasmussen in Cell Systems - Chaotic Dynamics Mediates Brain State Transitions, Driven by Changes in Extracellular Ion Concentrations

By extending the Averaged Neuron model to include changes in extracellular ion concentrations, Rasmussen et al. show that transitions between states of sleep and wakefulness are facilitated by ionic changes and governed by chaotic dynamics, which ensure smooth and robust transitions.

Graduate Course: Understanding the Brain through the Hippocampus and other neural systems 2017 organized by Marco Capogna

The four day course (28 November-1 December 2017), held at Aarhus University, has addressed key topics in molecular, cellular and system neuroscience. The vision from which the course is based is that explanation of normal and pathological events in the brain can only come from the rigorous definition of the neuronal circuits that underlie these…
