Towards Applicable Spiking Neural Networks

Brain structures encode and exchange information through the synchronous activation of cell assemblies. Brain rhythms at multiple frequencies shape cell assembly dynamics, and coordinate their emergence across multiple brain areas. The dialogue between brain areas lies at the basis of most cognitive functions. Multi-channel electrophysiological recordings, capturing the activity of ensembles of neurons in conjunction with local-field potentials, provided a great deal of insight into these complex mechanisms. Experiments in awake, behaving animals allow us to directly correlate brain activity patterns with cognition, with a level of detail unattainable with non-invasive methods such as functional neuroimaging. To go beyond correlational evidence, however, and to elucidate  causal relationships between neural and cognitive events, it is necessary to flexibly manipulate brain activity. Optogenetic methods provide novel ways to perturb neural activity in an unprecedentedly precise fashion. We are currently establishing optogenetic methodologies in the lab, and together with the partners in a new EU project “Enlightenment” (funding this position) we are developing a novel technological platform for detecting patterns of neural activity in real time, with dedicated hardware, and perturb brain circuits optogenetically upon detection of a target pattern, thus in a closed loop fashion. The PhD student will participate in  developing this platform, and he/she will apply it to the study of the interaction between multiple brain structures. In particular, the project aims at studying cortico-hippocampal interactions in memory acquisition and, consolidation.

Foreign Currency Exchange?

2002-08-01 21:56:31 by Rolvaag

I have three 2,000 peso bills from Mexico, dating from 1998.
B of A says the bills are out of circulations, replaced with 200 peso bills, and so cannot be exchanged, Thomas Cook said same thing. So I am asking, 1) if anyone knows how to exchange out of circulation bills outside of returning to Mexico, and 2) if anyone knows a place in the Mission where I can change this money for American dollars with actual hispanics?
Also is my 2,000 peso bill still worth 2,000 pesos or is it now worth only 200 pesos?
