Kim J et al, “Various synchronous states due to coupling strength inhomogeneity and coupling functions in systems of coupled identical oscillations”. Chaos 2019
Dr. Kamran Diba was awarded a multi-PI R01 grant, with co-PI Dr. Edwin (Ted) Abel at the University of Iowa, from NIMH.
This is a collaborative effort to investigate the “Molecular, cellular and circuit effects of sleep deprivation on hippocampal function” from multiple angles. A key part of this project will involve measurements and analyses in Dr. Diba’s lab of large-scale neuronal firing patterns in the hippocampus during memory acquisition and consolidation in waking and sleep, in…
Dr. Mashour has published a new book entitled “Oxford Textbook of Neuroscience and Anaesthesiology” with Kristin Engelhard.
The text book covers neuroscientific basis of anesthesiology, the full spectrum of clinical neuroanaesthesia, and the care of neurologic patients undergoing non-neurologic surgery.
with the title “Your mind: an objective and subjective approach to studying brain function during meditation”.
Dr. Anthony G. Hudetz, was awarded an R01 grant by the National Institute of General Medical Science of NIH to study the system-level neural mechanisms of anesthetic-induced unconsciousness.
Dr. Hudetz and his team will use functional magnetic resonance imaging to test the hypothesis that healthy human participants may be able to willfully engage in task-related mental imagery when sedated to the point of behavioral unresponsiveness and will seek to find a causal link between the state of intrinsic brain activity and volitional mental…
Dr. Phillip Vlisides, a core CCS faculty, was awarded an NIH Career Development Grant (K23) to study consciousness and cognition after surgery.
Dr. Vlisides and his team will analyze advanced neurophysiologic patterns-using electroencephalography and near-infrared spectroscopy-to better understand and predict cognitive impairment after surgery.
2017- Dr. Dinesh Pal, CCS faculty and Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, has been awarded a new R01 from the National Institutes of Health to study the mechanistic underpinnings of the interactions between sleep homeostasis and sedation
Dr. Pal will employ sophisticated techniques including high-density EEG in rodents and multi-neuroanalyte monitoring using mass spectrometry to answer a fundamental question: if and how sedatives can provide a sleep-like state. CCS director, Dr. Mashour is a co-investigator on the grant.
