East Bay Science Cafe: This is your brain on stress

Presentation | December 7 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Restaurant Valparaiso


1403 Solano Ave, Albany, CA 94706

Daniela Kaufer, Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute

Science@Cal


Stress is an inevitable part of our life, and understanding the biology of the stress response is relevant to each of us. In this month’s Cafe, Daniela will talk about the biology of the stress response, and discuss when is the stress response beneficial, when is it detrimental and what are the underlying mechanisms that lead to stress resilience vs. vulnerability in different individuals.

Berkeley Ear Club: "Speech perception with a cochlear implant and a hearing aid; synergy, better ear processing, interference and neglect"

Colloquium | December 12 | 4 p.m. | Tolman Hall, 3105 (Beach Room)


Mario Svirsky, Otolaryingology, Head & Neck Surgery NYU Medical

Department of Psychology


New audiometric criteria for cochlear implantation have yielded an expanding group of “bimodal” patients with residual hearing who use a cochlear implant in one ear and a hearing aid (or their unaided hearing) in the contralateral ear. These patients are sometimes able to integrate both acoustic and electrical information synergistically but in other cases they simply behave as if they were...   More >

The Role of Astrocytes in Neurovascular Coupling at the Capillary and Arteriole Level in the Retina and Brain

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | May 23 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall


Anusha Mishra, University College London, UK

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Neuronal activity evokes a spatially and temporally localized increase in blood flow to power the information processing carried out by the neurons, a phenomenon that underlies BOLD fMRI signals. This neurovascular coupling occurs both in the brain and the retina.

In the retina, both light- and glial-stimulation evoke pronounced arteriole dilations (30.8±3.7% and 23.5±4.1%, respectively). This...   More >
