[Seminar] "fosB-null mice display impaired adult hippocampal neurogenesis and spontaneous epilepsy with depressive behavior" by Noriko Yutsudo

Monday, May 19, 2014 - 11:00 to 12:00
Venue: OIST Campus Lab 1, Meeting Room C015 (Level C)

Date: Monday, May 19, 2014 Time: 11:00 – 12:00 Venue: Lab 1, Meeting Room C015 (Level C)

Speaker:   Dr. Noriko Yutsudo Affiliation: Kobe Pharmaceutical University

Title : “ fosB -null mice display impaired adult hippocampal neurogenesis and spontaneous epilepsy with depressive behavior ”

Abstract :

Patients with epilepsy are at high risk for major depression relative to the general population, and both disorders are associated with changes in adult hippocampal neurogenesis, although the mechanisms underlying disease onset remain unknown. The expression of fosB , an immediate early gene encoding FosB and DFosB/D2DFosB by alternative splicing and translation initiation, is known to be induced in neural progenitor cells within the subventricular zone...

Speaker: Mr. Hans Richard Tietz, Managing Director, Tietz Video and Image Processing Systems GmbH, Germany

Title: Multi-Purpose CMOS Cameras for Electron and X-Ray detection; Sensitivity, Resolution, Dynamic Range, Speed.

Abstract: The development of digital cameras, which are applicable for a wide HV range, and which satisfy all criteria: including large detection area, Signal-to-Noise Ratio, spatial resolution, dynamic range and fast read out, is a challenge. TVIPS has designed CMOS based cameras with active pixel sensors. The cameras fulfil...

[Seminar] “Analysis of the function of miR-124 during medaka neural development” by Yumiko Yamasaki-Kato

Thursday, May 8, 2014 - 11:00 to 12:00
OIST Campus Lab 1, Meeting Room C016 (Level C)

Title : “Analysis of the function of miR-124 during medaka neural development ”

Abstract :

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) comprise a group of small noncoding RNA molecules (about 22 nucleotides) thought to have contributed to the evolution of vertebrate brain homogeneity as well as diversity. The miRNA miR-124 is well conserved between invertebrates and vertebrates and is expressed abundantly in the central nervous system (CNS).

For my doctoral dissertation, I studied the function of miR-124 in Oryzias latipes (medaka). In this research, I collaborated with Dr. Rie Kusakabe and Prof. Dr. Kunio Inoue of Kobe University, Japan. We identified five candidate genes for medaka miR-124. The five genes are unlinked on four different chromosomes...

An on-site survey for countermeasures against earthquakes will be conducted in late April. The objective of the survey is to develop a blue-print of earthquake countermeasures plan at OIST. The survey will be conducted by OIST safety and health committee and outside experts in earthquake countermeasures, and check the current conditions of arrangement of research equipment and office furniture, and anchoring of them to floor or wall in the laboratory spaces as well as administrative offices on campus. The survey is scheduled from April 21st through 24th.

Abstract: In our life, reward or punishment often comes after an uncertain delay. After seeing and trying many things, how can we tell what caused a good or bad result? This is a classic case of “temporal credit assignment” or delayed reward problem. The theory of reinforcement learning prescribes a number of strategies to cope with this problem: 1) look back...
