Social and Cognitive Neuroscience of Thought
ID
860176
Dates
24 Jun 2017 - 01 Jul 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
This Advanced Course will focus on applying cutting-edge neuroscience approaches to fundamental questions about the human mind. Historically, many important advances in neuroscience have come from highly invasive studies of model animals, including rodents and monkeys. However, fascinating aspects of human psychology and cognition cannot be recreated in animal models, including language, morality, social group interactions, and complex decision making. Over the past five years, new experimental designs and analysis techniques have dramatically increased the power of noninvasive neuroimaging in humans to address these questions directly. The Advanced Course will cover: 1) how richly structured knowledge about the environment is acquired, and used to guide adaptive behavior; 2) the role of early experience in structuring concepts of events, objects and other people; 3) how people balance their internal perspective with the social context of other people; 4) how persuasive message and ideas spread across people and affect behavior; 5) how decision making is affected by social and societal context; 6) how people balance selfish and moral motivations in social decision making; and 7) how group membership and prejudice lead to failures of empathy, dehumanization, and misunderstanding of other people. The Faculty will focus on cutting edge techniques for integrating behavioral, computational, and machine learning approaches with neuroimaging of the human brain.

Sleep and Cognition
ID
860185
Dates
08 Jul 2017 - 15 Jul 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
This Advanced Course will cut across multiple fields of sleep studies and will feature dedicated sessions addressing important emerging areas. Emphasis will be placed on cutting-edge methods and hypotheses for understanding sleep and its effects on cognitive functions, and on how neurophysiological/genetic/imaging approaches can shed light on the functions of sleep and its essential role in maintaining and preserving vigilance, performance, learning and memory. Some of the topics that will be covered include the following: 1) the link between sleep and brain plasticity, with in depth discussion of the ultrastructural, molecular, electrophysiological and behavioral evidence linking synaptic plasticity and learning during wake with sleep need; 2) the discovery of novel brain circuits and cell types involved in sleep regulation; 3) the role of sleep in learning, memory consolidation as well as forgetting; 4) the effects of sleep loss on brain cognitive functions and how these effects depend on a complex interaction between homeostatic and circadian factors; 5) sleep and dreaming, and how the application of new behavioral paradigms and high-density EEG can contribute to the understanding of the occurrence of conscious experiences during sleep. The course will be an interactive, multidisciplinary forum in which participants will discard outdated notions, gain an appreciation for the latest thinking, and develop insights that will help navigate the complexity of sleep research.

Cognitive Decine and Aging
ID
868381
Dates
01 Sep 2017 - 08 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Age is the greatest risk factor for multiple neurodegenerative diseases. In that context, the prevailing perception of the aging brain is of linear decline across multiple systems. A diametrically different perspective is that the aging brain is a dynamic adaptive organ that initiates multiple survival systems throughout the aging process. While these adaptations in the aging brain are for the majority of persons beneficial, they can, in vulnerable populations, lead to increased risk of neurodegenerative disease. The systems biology of transition states in normal aging and neurodegeneration provides insights into mechanisms of disease risk and disease progression. Risk of multiple neurodegenerative diseases can emerge during neuroendocrine transitions of aging when gene networks undergo shifts in activation and expression. These risk networks underlie the prodromal phase of neurodegenerative disease. Later, transition states typify the progressive nature of multiple neurodegenerative diseases. Risk for and progression of Alzheimer’s disease are exemplars of both risk that can emerge during neuroendocrine transitions and the transition states of disease progression.

The Neuroscience of Obesity
ID
868423
Dates
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Significant progress has been made in recent years in the understanding the role of the nervous system in obesity. Not only several different neuronal pathways, neurotransmitters and hormones have been identified as major players in the regulation of feeding and body weight, bu also energy balance in mammals is controlled by a complex network of interacting feedback mechanisms that involve peripheral organs in addition to higher brain centers. This Advanced Course will provide conceptual- and cutting edge technological framework for state-of-the-art of neuroscience on energy metabolism. The Faculty represents diverse expertise in molecular, cellular, circuit and behavioral approaches on contemporary questions regarding the role of the brain in systemic metabolism regulation and how the periphery affects complex brain functions via neuronal circuits and brain cells.
