Location | The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), 33 Russel Street,room# 2015
Host | Dr. Sean Hill, Director, Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, CAMH
Abstract| Our brain is capable of remarkablecomputations, from perceiving and handling a glass of wine to making fast andaccurate movements during a game of tennis. The neuronal network computationsare governed by network connectivity, biophysical mechanisms and anatomicalfeatures with which neurons are endowed. Neurons have elaborate dendriticmorphologies and a host of ion channels that give rise to a variety ofelectrical properties. The neurons in the network are also connected viaseveral types of synapses, each having unique and rich kinetics. Throughbiophysical modeling, I have showed that dendritic mechanisms play a key role incomputations of cortical sensory microcircuits. To better understand thesensory input the cortex receives, I have studied the neural code of thetactile neuronal population innervating human fingertips, and showed thedifferent role of AMPA and NMDA in synaptic integration of the populationactivity when computing edge orientations. In my future lab, I aim to study theeffect of dendritic mechanisms on the cortical representation of tactileobjects. I will expand the model cortical network with the downstream networksthat provide sensory input to the cortex, and will perturb the densities andkinetics of dendritic ion channels and synapses, as informed by genetic datafrom patients with brain disorders, to shed light on the role dendriticmechanisms play in either disrupting or mediating neuronal networkcomputations.

Special Seminar Series
Speaker | Guoshi Li, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Departmentof Radiology at UNC-Chapel Hill
Title | Emergent properties of neural networks underlying regulatorycontrol and pathophysiology
Date | Friday,
 August 24, 2018
Time | 11:00 AM - noon
Location |CAMH, 250 College Street, 8th floor, room 801
Host | Dr. Sean Hill, Director, Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, CAMH
Abstract| The human brain is a dynamic system made up of complex circuits andsynapses, humming with continuous electrical and chemical activity.  The interaction of its cellular, synaptic andcircuit elements gives rise to emergent network properties that underlie normalbrain function; conversely, dysfunctional network states can underlie a rangeof pathological conditions.Understanding such complex network behaviors in a form amenable tomedical intervention requires the systematic integration of cellular, synapticand circuit properties with systems-level network functions in a common,biophysically-realistic model framework.Such frameworks facilitate the direct integration of experimental datainto working models and enable the development of specific, experimentallytestable hypotheses.  Using three neuralsystems as examples (thalamus, olfactory bulb and amygdala), I illustrate theutility of biophysical models in understanding: (1) how complex network dynamicsarise from the biophysical properties of individual neurons and synapses andtheir network configuration, and (2) how neuronal and circuit propertiessustain and constrain the specific computations that the neural circuit canperform.  In each of these threeexamples, my models demonstrate that the biophysical properties of constituentneurons and synapses are important factors in the regulation and stability ofthese systems-level network functions.

Title | Models ofpersecutory delusions: A mechanistic insight into the different stages ofpsychosis
Date | Monday, August 27, 2018
Time | 10:30 – 11:30 AM
Location |CAMH, 250 College Street, 8th floor, room 801
Host | Dr. Sean Hill, Director, Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, CAMH
Abstract| Identifying robust markers for predicting the onset of psychosis hasbeen a key challenge for early detection research. Persecutory delusions arecore symptoms of psychosis, and social cognition is particularly impaired infirst episode psychosis patients and individuals at risk for developingpsychosis. In this talk, I propose new avenues for translation provided byhierarchical Bayesian models of behaviour and neuroimaging data – EEG and fMRI- applied in the context of social learning to target persecutory delusions. Asit comprises a mechanistic model embedded in neurophysiology, the findings ofthis approach may shed light onto inference and neurobiological causes oftransition to psychosis. I will also highlight new ways, in which computationalmodels of behaviour and brain activity could be translated to clinicalpractice.

Time | 1:15 – 2:15 PM
Location |CAMH, 250 College Street, 8th floor, room 801
Host | Dr. Sean Hill, Director, Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, CAMH
Abstract| Large-scale brain network modelling is a powerful tool forfurthering our understanding of the principles of brain organization and itspathologies at the meso- and macroscopic spatial scales accessible with modernneuroimaging techniques. In this talk I summarize my work applyingcomputational and theoretical approaches in the following areas:  i)modelling the contribution of thalamocortical loop dynamics to rhythmic brainactivity, and its implications for brain stimulation; ii) studying sphericalharmoniceigen mode structure in neural field models and brain connectivitymeasurements; and iii) developing connectome-based white matter atlas tools for'virtual lesion studies'. Large-scale modelling approaches have a central roleto play in the emerging science of neuro informatics, as they connect naturally(indeed, by construction) the two focal points of standards, framework, andontology development in the field - namely neuroimaging and micro-scaleneuronal and circuit modelling. In the final part of the talk I elaborate onthis perspective. I outline key knowledge gaps and research priorities for the field,and indicate how these figure in an integrative research program that combinesstate of the art neuroimaging, neuromodulation, and whole-brain, multi-scalecomputational neuroscience techniques.

Title | Causal modelling approaches for multimodal neuroimaging
Date | Friday,
 August 31, 2018
Time | 1:15 – 2:15 PM
Location |CAMH, 250 College Street, 8th floor, room 801
Host | Dr. Sean Hill, Director, Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, CAMH
Abstract| Multimodal neuroimaging has come to the forefront of modern psychiatric neuroscience. There is now unprecedented access to very large, well-phenotyped neuroimaging samples from naturalistic populations such as the Human Connectome Project, UK-Biobank and others. It is becoming increasingly clear that novel neuroimaging tools are needed to address the shear mass of data, as well as collaborative work is necessary for well-powered analyses within disease populations. As most psychiatric disorders have a large genetic contribution, it is also imperative to model mechanistic relationships incorporating molecular genetics, brain structure and function, and symptoms.

In this seminar, I will begin by discussing the pleotropic effect of genetic risk for schizophrenia on multimodal neuroimaging phenotypes and its implications on symptom heterogeneity. Next, I will introduce my TFCE_mediation toolbox which is uniquely tailor for extracting latent causal effects in massive multimodal neuroimaging datasets; thereby, providing direct links among diagnosis, brain, and cognitive function. Further, I provide three examples in which TFCE_mediation provides relevant neuroimaging findings for the clinic. Last, I will discuss building neuroimaging pipelines, databases, and analysis tools that are specifically designed to foster collaborative effects among scientists of distinct disciplines.

This work provides a basis for what I envision is the future of neuropsychiatric imaging research. I argue precision medicine requires the development of novel research tools that inform more specific therapeutic targets. I will conclude with my research goals including: software development, collaborative efforts for standardized data analyses, and potential projects for which these statistically causal tools could be used to develop neuroimaging atlases and enhance clinical research in general.
