Brain Science Flight, Piloting to a New Height!
Sadato group (Research Group 2, Brain/MINDS Beyond) from National Institute for Physiological Sciences combined optogenetics and fMRI to visualize whole brain activity under the optogenetic stimulation of the primary motor cortex of macaque monkeys.
Kishima group (Research Group 1-1, Brain/MINDS Beyond) from Osaka University has elucidated that the phase-amplitude coupling (PAC) of magnetoencephalogram (MEG) differs between epileptic patients and healthy individuals, and it improves the discrimination of the two groups.
Dr. Koike (Research Group 1-2, Brain/MINDS Beyond), an associate professor at the University of Tokyo, has developed a classifier using structural brain images in chronic schizophrenia, which could classify independent datasets with high precision. This could be useful in the differential diagnosis of diseases in the future.
IBI Data Standards and Sharing Working Group (WG) has published a Position Paper on international data governance. Prof. Hanakawa (Kyoto University) is a member of this WG.
