Studies show:

- greater moral fortitude
- not being influenced by group in polling situation
- non-heuristic thinking
- not being influenced by advertising
- not lying for gain

in autistics. And here is the nutty thing. They are described as deficits of 'Theory of mind'.
Two examples: and…

Uh. Just a thought. Are we a little scary, perhaps, for the powers-that-be?
Theory of Mind research. From an autistic perspective.

The @OHBM #BrainArt exhibit is live! Come stop by Hall 4 to visit this year's special theme exhibit “The Connected Brain”.

Check out our featured artists in the thread below.
Anne Sikora’s work is an interactive installation à l’odeur representing five #emotions : love, anxiety, happiness, sadness and aggression. All guests/attendees are invited to smell the sweat of these emotions and may guess which is which.
@cbuyukberber’s “Hyperconnection” takes the initial generative form that has been created as a mural based on @vborghesani’s studies on comparing the states of the #brain while we process language & turns it into an animated meditative deep dive into the organic #networks.

The more I’ve learned about #neuroscience and #trauma,

the more I’ve realized that the lies we’re told by society about #individualism, rationalism and human agency/choice have DEEPLY confused us about

why we suffer and how we heal.

A quick 🧵
.We desperately want to believe that we make our own choices based on our own logic.

But #neuroscience is teaching us that our decision-making is SIGNIFICANTLY determined by our affective/emotional state and the ways we’ve been socialized over time.

.Our affective/emotional states are deeply impacted by how relationally safe we feel within our social context up to and in a given moment.

In other words, the extent to which we feel physically safe and socially accepted affects what we CHOOSE and what we DO.

Read 13 tweets has lots of parts to it. I like #neuroscience Twitter for getting a quick overview of what's happening. @smarek0502 & @tervoclemmensb wrote detailed 🧵s with figs. I'll just give bullet pts of what the study is & isn't saying 👇
It's specifically about BWAS (brain-wide association studies) as defined in the 2nd sentence: ‘studies of the associations between common inter-individual variability in human brain structure/function and cognition or psychiatric symptomatology’. BWAS ≠ neuroimaging
as brilliantly detailed here: the key distinction is between cross-sectional association (BWAS) and detection (classic task fMRI, lesion studies, within-participant treatment effects, etc). The large sample size requirements are for associations.

1/🧵 Let’s talk Long COVID:

I’m grouping several important & interesting articles about the reality of #LongCOVID.

By studying brain fluid, viral persistence & MRIs, we’re building our understanding of the “how” & “why” of this devastating malady.

A train is coming, read on…
2/ Cerebrospinal Fluid Offers Clues to #BrainFog

Most pts w new “thinking problems” after mild #COVID had abnormalities in fluid from lumbar punctures (image); controls did not.

Delayed #LongCOVID was common in younger people who thought they were safe.
3/ Believing those with #LongCOVID complaints is our 1st basic show of support!

“If people tell us they have new thinking & memory issues, I think we should believe them rather than require that they meet certain severity criteria.”

Multiplication in a single neuron. In a new @Nature article, @MalisJonatan, @BirteZuidinga, Axel Borst, and I describe the arithmetic of #Drosophila motion vision in biophysical terms. #Neuroscience @MPIforBI @MSCActions @EMBO (1/4)…
Using #PatchClamp #Ephys #InVivo, we recorded the membrane potentials of ON motion-sensing T4 neurons and their presynaptic partners. One type of input neuron (blue) provides continuous shunting inhibition. (2/4)
Only during visual motion in a T4 neuron’s preferred direction, well-timed release from inhibition amplifies coincident excitation in a multiplication-like fashion. Such ‘multiplicative disinhibition’ can approximate a logic AND gate. (#FlyPushing by @BirteZuidinga; 3/4)

Brain mapping requires thorough synaptic measurements with diverse subclasses of neurons. Check out our latest #neuroscience publication: “Synaptic connectivity to L2/3 of primary visual cortex measured by two-photon #optogenetic stimulation”
📄 🧵 1
Our team [including @trav_ha, @timjarsky, @HongkuiZeng & @lukecampagnola] + @bakermind combined optogenetic stimulation with simultaneous multicellular recording to measure synaptic connections within cortical microcircuits. #optogenetics🧵 2
The reliability of multiphoton optogenetic stimulation was measured across Cre lines & connectivity measurements were verified by #patchclamp recordings 🧵 3

Different cell types in the brain have their own connectivity rules and patterns. In a recently published study, our #neuroscience researchers took a deep dive into the connectomics of an important but enigmatic cell type, the chandelier cell. 🧵1

🔬 💻 Using large-scale #electronmicroscopy with automated segmentation, we mapped the complete axo-axonic input onto pyramidal neurons (1,929 synapses in total, 1,127 from chandelier cells) in a volume of layer 2/3 of mouse visual cortex. #ImagingTheFuture #BrainMapping🧵2
By completely reconstructing the presynaptic chandelier cells, we found a novel principle of connectivity, where a group of interneurons are essentially interchangeable, but their postsynaptic targets individually regulate the amount of input they receive from the population. 🧵3

Generative Models of Brain Dynamics – A #review

🎁 After a year of work, our #Xmas present is freshly out: 🎄

Get a bird's eye view with the synthesis of >200 refs at the intersection of #ML, #DynamicalSystems, and #Neuroscience!

A thread…🧵 (1/5)
To navigate through the broad landscape of neurodynamics modeling approaches, we map them based on the scale of organization/granularity and level of abstraction ~ conceptual scope (2/5)
We both covered classic cornerstones and recent SOTA methods, a methodological spectrum from naturalistic to abstract, from data- to hypothesis-driven generative models (3/5)

Natural (unmedicated) #birth
feels like weighted squats
at the gym for 12 hours.
Its exhausting and drones on and its uncomfortable, and you’re hungry and thirsty. Its a marathon. But u don’t feel pain until the next day.
I was able to achieve this maybe for a couple reasons:
Before #pregnancy I was fit AF.
Exercise was not painful.

At all.

Exercise changes pain reception.
Athletes feel LESS PAIN.
And the uterus is
just a GIANT muscle
which needs extra oxygen.
while exercising,
This isn’t bc exercise hurts.
Its bc lactic acid builds up around your tissues and without excreting muscle cell wastes,
the body feels pain.

I have a hypothesis,
and I need help.

Ce matin on démarre par une conf autour des neurosciences : Percevoir et communiquer : réalité et fiction personnelle - Yves Rosetti @AgileGrenoble #agilegrenoble #agile #neuroscience #illusion
Quelques illusions d'optiques pour commencer : le rond ici si on l'isole est le même, mais donne l'impression d'une lune jaune ou bleue. Les illusions d'optique existent car le monde est complexe. #agilegrenoble Image
Pour les spécialistes d'illusions d'optique, le concept d'illusion est un non-sens car notre cerveau interprète en permanence, en voyant des "illusions d'optique" mais aussi dans la vie de tous les jours. Ex avec le célèbre "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" de Magritte #agilegrenoble Image

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳

A short thread on a recent publication from @HiyaaLab, in Translational Psychiatry. The study shows that the dendritic structure & electrical properties of adult neurons in healthy brains depend on proactive regulation by the gene Tcf4, a high risk allele for #Schizophrenia.
1/7 Image
The #research reveals unexpected gene-networks, previously known to be involved in ciliary pathways, underlie #structural and #functional integrity of mature neurons in the healthy adult brain.
Given that the elaborate #dendrites & spines enable a neuron’s physical and electrical connectivity in a #neural circuit, alteration in the structure disrupts neuronal function, affecting the circuits and #cognition. 3/7
