Es descriuen noves evidències de connectivitat en un cas de malaltia de Parkinson

Un estudi internacional que ha estat codirigit per Gustavo Deco, professor d’investigació ICREA i director del CBC, conjuntament amb el científic Morten L. Kringelbach, publicat a la revista Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, ha obtingut les connexions neuronals completes de la substància blanca cerebral d'un pacient amb malaltia de Parkinson, abans i després de l'estimulació cerebral profunda (DBS).

Automatic systems in the human brain recognize hierarchy and social identity

Social hierarchy is a ubiquitous principle of organization in animal species. We know that some individuals are more sensitive to hierarchical information than others, but despite some progress being made in our understanding of this social phenomenon, the neuroanatomical basis of the process had not been sufficiently explored. We now know that a neural network is involved in the automatic recognition of social identity.

Contribution of computational modelling to the knowledge of brain dynamics

The research published by Nature Reviews Neuroscience on 17 June, coordinated by Gustavo Deco , ICREA research professor and director of the CBC, which involved Danish and north American researchers. The article reviews how the brain must regulate the information flow of incoming stimuli to enable cognition and the adaptation of behaviour (upf news).

Despite suffering a stroke, children recover brain function of the affected area

Given the laterality shown by human beings, each brain hemisphere specializes in a number of functions. For example, language is usually focused in the left hemisphere and perception in the right. Children who suffer prenatal or perinatal brain injury with brain haemorrhage develop notable normal cognitive functions in certain areas such as those associated with language skills. One possible explanation for this has been that the brain regions of the unaffected brain hemisphere could replace the functions of the damaged counterpart.

Cristina Galusca wins the first edition of the competition Rin4 '

The final of the first edition of the Rin4' competition, an exercise of scientific dissemination by current young doctoral degree scientists aimed at a non-specialist audience, took place on 8 June in the multipurpose hall of the Mercè Rodoreda building at the Ciutadella campus of Pompeu Fabra University.

The first prize went to Cristina Galusca, who is doing her research in the Reasoning and Infant Cognition (RICO) Research Group at the CBC, with the presentation "Eye remember this!” (
