Practopoiesis: Or how life fosters a mind

bioRxiv

May 29, 2014

Danko Nikolić

Abstract

The mind is a biological phenomenon. Thus, biological principles of organization should also be the principles underlying mental operations. Practopoiesis states that the key for achieving intelligence through adaptation is an arrangement in which mechanisms laying a lower level of orga...read more

Stem Cells & Neuroimmunology

The use of stem cells is being explored as a treatment option for neuroimmune disorders. The immune system has been demonstrated to have negative impacts on cognitive function and neurogenesis and is a potential target for therapeutic intervention. Discover the latest research on stem cells and neuroimmunology.

Here are the latest preprints on physiological and in silico networks and circuits implicated in the nervous system.

Neuronal Plasticity

Neuronal plasticity is the brain’s ability to change its structure and function in response to internal or external factors. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that influence this process.

Functional Connectivity Networks

Functional connectivity networks represent specific patterns of synchronous activity and differ between healthy subjects, stages of consciousness and across disease. Discover the latest research on functional connectivity networks here.

Synaptic Biochemistry

Synapses are essential for neuronal function. Synaptic loss and alterations are associated with sensory, motor, and cognitive impairments, and have been implicated in several neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on synaptic biochemistry.
