[Comp-neuro] Workshop on Cortical Spreading Depression

Workshop on Cortical Spreading Depression (CSD) and Related Neurological Phenomena 

July 7-11, 2014 

Robert M. Miura (Math. Sci. and Biomedical Eng, NJIT, USA), 
Huaxiong Huang (Math. & Statistics, York U, Canada), 
Markus Dahlem (Physics, Humboldt U, Berlin, Germany)

In this workshop, we will bring together a group of researchers from the areas of mathematical modeling and experimentalists in neuroscience to address some of the fundamental issues related to neurovascular coupling and cortical spreading depression (CSD) and related neurological phenomenon. CSD is a slow propagating wave of pathological elevation of extracellular potassium. It is linked to migraine with aura, stroke, and possibly other neurological disorders. The main objective of the workshop is to discuss and incorporate recent advances in experimental studies into mathematical models that are capable of reproducing observed phenomenon and to make predictions that can be verified by further experimental studies.
