The following posters were presented at SFN 10 in San Diego:

Davide Reato, Marom Bikson, Lucas C Parra, “Intrinsic network dynamics govern sensitivity to weak electric fields: Adaptation, modulation and sub-harmonic pacing”

Asif Rahman, Davide Reato, Thomas Radman, Mark Gleichmann, Abhishek Datta, Lucas C Parra, Marom Bikson, “Effects of Weak Direct Current Stimulation on Synaptic Plasticity in Rat Motor Cortex in vitro”

Our Wireless Intraoperative Pulse Oximeter (“WiPOX”) enters Phase 1 clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).  Developed by Dr. Marom Bikson, Luiz Carolos Olleris, and Varun Bansal in collaboration with Dr. Prasad Adusumilli (MSKCC), the WiPOX have a wide range of potential applications ranging from acute (home) patient monitoring to plastic surgery.  Learn more at our Project page.

Davide Reato gives the first of three lectures today on neuron models. The first lecture introduces neuronal modeling to the uninitiated – first describing types of models (compartmental models, cascade models and black box models) then followed by a discussion on classes of spiking neurons. The second lecture in this series will dive into the ways to model neurons.
