    Snow was falling heavily when Sarah was driving on a slippery road to her cousin's country cottage. It was dark outside, and the visibility was poor. She had planned to arrive before sunset, but the rental service had made a mistake, and it took hours before she got her rental car at the airport. It was past midnight now, and after a long day of traveling, Sarah was starting to get sleepy. Fortuna... View full abstract»

    The ultimate goal is to understand how the information in the distributed neural circuits of the brain reorganizes and plastically adapts to laboratory disruptions designed to reversibly mimic brain injury. Our approach involves a new generation of data- driven mathematical models of brain circuits and their connection with complex behavioral tasks in primates that are enabled with a suite of nove...

    This article presents a novel, tightly integrated pipeline for estimating a connectome. The pipeline utilizes magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MRI) data to produce a high-level estimate of the structural connectivity in the human brain. The MR connectome automated pipeline (MRCAP) is efficient, and its modular construction allows researchers to modify algorithms to meet their specific requirements... View full abstract»

    The waveform morphology of intracranial pressure (ICP) pulses holds essential information about intracranial and cerebrovascular pathophysiologies. Automatic analysis of the ICP waveforms may help to predict abnormal increase of ICP and thus prevent severe complications in patients treated for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). This article describes a probabilistic framework to track the ICP wavefo... View full abstract»

    The mammalian visual system is still the gold standard for recognition accuracy, flexibility, efficiency, and speed. Ongoing advances in our understanding of function and mechanisms in the visual system can now be leveraged to pursue the design of computer vision architectures that will revolutionize the state of the art in computer vision.

    The goal of the Caltech group is to gain insight into the processes that occur within the primate nervous system during dexterous reaching and grasping and to see whether natural recovery from local brain damage can be accelerated by artificial means. We will create computational models of the nervous system embodying this insight and explain a variety of clinically observed neurological deficits ... View full abstract»

    The evolution and development of hospitals in their historical context are quickly reviewed in this column, starting first as simple shelters for the sick and indigent who were waiting essentially for death, and up to the relatively recent concept of true health centers where patients face a high probability of actual recovery and rehabilitation. Anesthesia, microbiology, asepsia, antibiotics, vir... View full abstract»
