Please join us to discuss how network dysrhythmias may be related to motor tics. Dr. Alan Gibson will lead the discussion of the paper "Global Dysrhythmia of Cerebro-Basal Ganglia–Cerebellar Networks Underlies Motor Tics following Striatal Disinhibition" by McCarin, Iriki, and Isoda, Journal of Neuroscience, 2013, 33(2):679-708.
Please join us for a discussion of using high-field MRI for DBS lead placement. Dr. Ponce will lead discussion of the recent article:
"Clinical outcomes of PD patients having bilateral STN DBS using high-field interventional MR-imaging for lead placement" (2012). Jill L. Ostrema, Nicholas B. Galifianakis, Leslie C. Markun, Jamie K.

Conference room of the Mohammed Ali Parkinson's Center on the 3rd floor of the 240 building.
The first discussion group for this academic year will cover a paper that we currently have in review on using single neuron microwire recordings in human epilepsy patients to predict which brain areas may require resection to treat seizures.
"A Statistical Method for Predicting Seizure Onset Zones from Human Single-Neuron Recordings", André B Valdez, Erin N Hickman, David M Treiman, Kris A Smith and Peter N Steinmetz. Journal of Neural Engineering, in review.
During the academic year from September 2012 - May 2013 the BCN Discussion group will meet 4:30 - 6 PM on the third Thursday of the month, in the Mohammed Ali Parkinson Center conference room (3rd floor of the 240 Building).
More information to come about subjects and exact dates.
Please join us when Dr. Rohit Dhall will lead the discussion on the use of dopamine cell transplants to treat Parkinson's Disease.
The paper will be "Dopamine Cell Transplantation for Parkinson's Disease: The Importance of Controlled Clinical Trials" by Curt Freed, Wenbo Zhou, and Robert Breeze. Neurotherapeutics (2011) 8:549-651.
