Devil inside the brain : can we outwit them ?

The greatest tragedy in life is not one time death but dying each day. Debilitating brain damaging diseases such as Alzheimer’s cripples the memory and other mental faculties to such an extent that one loses memory of everything including one’s own name. In Alzheimer’s disease such is the fatal turn of events that one of body’s own proteins, Amyloid- (A’), turn rogue, form gangs and attack nerve cells disrupting communication between them. We have developed imaging techniques to directly visualize some of the key information transfer agents namely serotonin and dopamine in a label free manner without tagging it with any molecular beacon and then studied routes which A’ take to cause disruption of information transfer and nerve cell damage. Are there ways to stop this damage ? My talk will attempt to answer some of these.
 

Aggregative Games in Oligopoly with application in Media Economics

Bâtiment Cournot, Salle C 513, ENS-Cachan

La RI Behavioral Economics présente 2 conférences organisées par le Département Economie-Gestion de l’ENS-Cachan, sur le thème de « l'Economie des Média », par :

professeur invité au Département par André de Palma,

Résumé : we compile an IO toolkit for aggregative games and then use inclusive reaction functions to compare long-run market structures in aggregative oligopoly games. We show strong neutrality properties across market structures. The IIA property of demands (CES and logit) implies that consumer surplus depends on the aggregate alone, and that the Bertrand pricing game is aggregative. We link together the following results : merging parties' profits fall but consumer surplus is unchanged, Stackelberg leadership raises welfare, monopolistic competition is the market structure with the highest surplus. The framework is then applied to Media Economics.

JEL Classifications: D43, L13

Keywords: Aggregative games; oligopoly theory; entry; strategic substitutes and complements; IIA property, mergers, leadership, contests, monopolistic competition, Logit/CES, Cournot, R&D.

From flop to success in academic software development

Most lines of code written by programmers in academia never reach an audience. I believe that the cause of this problem is not that academic programmers are incompetent, but more an overall difficulty of defining goals and managing complexity. I will summarize what I have learned leading several scientific software projects to wide success, such as Mayavi, joblib, scikit-learn: what are the choices that make a successful project ? How to organize a community of productive developers that move together ? How to build viable scientific code ?

Bio : Gaël Varoquaux is a computer-science researcher at Inria. His research develops statistical learning tools for functional neuroimaging data with application to cognitive mapping of the brain as well as the study of brain pathologies. In addition, he is heavily invested in software development for science, and wants to make leading-edge algorithmic and statistical tools developed in computer science available across new fields. He project-lead for scikit-learn, one of the reference machine-learning toolboxes, and on joblib, Mayavi, and nilearn. Varoquaux is a nominated member of the Python Software Fundation, and the director of the LearnClues laboratory. He has a PhD in quantum physics and is a graduate from Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris.

Are we building the right thing ? Requirements from theory for simulation environments and neuromorphic computing"

1st community workshop HBP network simulator
Organized by Andrew Davison, Jeff Muller, Jochen Eppler, David Lester, Abigail Morrison and Markus Diesmann (HBP SP5 & SP6) in collaboration with the EITN (HBP SP4).
The HBP creates novel ICT infrastructure for the neuroscience community. Simulation engines in software and hardware for different levels of description are accessible through a unified collaboration portal (UP) providing version control and provenance tracking. The simulation engine for networks of abstract spiking neuron models called the network simulator provided by the software NEST particularly targets theoretical neuroscience and neurorobotics. This workshop presents the capabilities of the network simulator and the corresponding PyNN expressions as available at the end of the ramp-up phase of the HBP in March 2016. Neuromorphic hardware provided by the NM-PM1 (Heidelberg) and SpiNNaker (Manchester) systems enable the translation of a restricted set of software models to a platform with accelerated speed and reduced power consumption for high-throughput studies and interaction with the real world. With this background, the main part of the workshop is reserved for a discussion of the scientific challenges and plans of theoretical neuroscience to derive future requirements on the simulation engine. This will help developers to optimize the roadmap of the second phase of the HBP with the aim to maximize usefulness, uptake, and impact.      :
Introductory talks : Andrew Davison, CNRS-UNIC, Markus Diesmann, FZJ, Mikael Djurfeldt, INCF Stockholm, Jochen Eppler, FZJ, Dave Lester, Manchester,  Jeff Muller, EPFL, Eric Müller, Heidelberg U, Hans Ekkehard Plesser, NMBU

Power laws and multiple scales in neural systems

European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience
Publié le 27 Février 2015

2015, 12-13 March
More information and registration on eitnconf-120315.sciencesconf.org
Due to a limited number of seats, the registration is free however mandatory
Organized by Gaute Einevoll (UMB) and Alain Destexhe (CNRS)
This meeting's purpose is to bring together researchers of different fields, from physics to computational and experimental neuroscience, within the aim of linking different scales of investigation.A particular emphasis is given on the scale-invariant properties, which is manifested by power-law relations for different variables investigated experimentally. Such power-law relations may be very informative on the type of dynamical state exhibited by brain activity. Our goal is to make an overview of the recent findings in this field, from neuronal cultures to the awake brain, and their respective models.
