Beyond Mechanisms

Helder Coelho

Abstract: In science today, mechanisms play a relevant role to explain the relation between causes and effects. For example, in healthcare, neuro or social sciences suitable descriptions help to interpret functions and how parts and processes interact and work. Also, by using mechanisms we know how attain more realism by scaling-up.

As coisas de que sabemos pouco

Na Science de 7 de outubro, no vol. 354, issue 6308, Pamela J. Hines explica como o cérebro se constrói, a mobilidade dos neurónios, das zonas onde proliferam para as localizações finais, e revela que qualquer problema que ocorra durante a migração pode afetar o desenvolvimento de uma criança, nos aspetos físicos e comportamentais.

2nd Meeting of the PhD students from the Mind-Brain College of the University of Lisbon

The meeting program includes presentations from the PhD students, either oral or poster communications, a debate about students formation, a discussion about open access policies and  3 amazing keynote speakers: Prof. Richard Morris, Prof. Bjoern Brembs and Prof. Manuela Veloso. 

We are also preparing a round table devoted to Alzheimer's disease, open to all. 

Advances in Multimodal Imaging in Humans

Jon Shah will present his work about the development and implementation of new methods combining Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in a hybrid MR-PET scanner. This opens new frontiers for the study and application of innovative methods in basic and translational brain research. 

Do not miss this opportunity to know Jon Shah, the Director of the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine in Juelich, with more than 500 publications and almost 13,500 citations!
