Seminario: Multiscale Investigation and Modeling of the Cerebellar Circuit.

Conferenciante: Egidio D’Angelo. Department of Brain and Behavioral Sciences, University of Pavia, Italia.

Resumen: The cerebellum is one of the most fascinating neural circuits of the brain. The cerebellum has been classically associated to the control of movement and its pathological counterpart, ataxia, but it has recently been related to cognitive processing and supposed to be involved in autism, dyslexia and Alzheimer disease just to mention some. This talk will show a multiscale reconstruction of cerebellar functions making use of advanced data-driven modeling and robotic techniques and will open a perspective on how this multiscale approach could be applied to the analysis of integrated brain signals, like those deriving from structural and functional MRI, and used to assist the interpretation of brain function and pathology.
