Dr Quang Vinh Nguyen, from the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development is researching how large amounts of genetic data can be analysed to explore and guide better diagnosis and treatment options that are safer, less toxic and more effective for kids with leukemia.
Participants are needed for an MRI study conducted by the MARCS Music, Cognition and Action Program called, the Rhythmic Brain. The study will examine the brain while synchronising movement with sound.
Scientists have successfully created a new flexible polymer patch that attaches to live heart tissue and improves the conduction of electrical impulses across a damaged heart without the need for stiches.
A research grant worth almost $3 million has been awarded to a consortium including The MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development at Western Sydney University to develop a non-obtrusive and personalised treatment option for people who suffer from sleep apnoea.
Monday, 3 April, 2017 1pm - 2:30pm Dr Sanz-Leon will present on computational modelling and neuroinformatics framework for large-scale brain simulations and explain a mathematical framework that allows you to express models from one single area (or tissue), to a few interconnected areas to the whole brain..

Monday, 24 April, 2017 1pm-2.30pm Professor Grayden will present on a passive stent-electrode recording array called the "Stentrode" developed for brain-machine interfacing. This will negate the need for implanting electrodes into the brain via open craniotomy for people with spinal cord injury, loss of limb and other movement disorders.
