Implanted Neural Stem Cell Grafts Show Functionality in Spinal Cord Injuries

August 5, 2020

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine report successfully implanting specialized grafts of neural stem cells directly into spinal cord injuries in mice, then documenting how the grafts grew and filled the injury sites, mimicking the animals’ existing neuronal network.

Stem Cell Grafts and Rehabilitation Combined Boost Spinal Cord Injury Results

October 28, 2022

In animal models, UC San Diego researchers found that intensive physical therapy in tandem with implanted neural stem cells increased tissue growth, repair and functionality in spinal cord injuries more than those treatments alone.

Understanding How Neurons Shape Memories of Smells

March 9, 2015

In a study that helps to deconstruct how olfaction is encoded in the brain, neuroscientists at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified a type of neuron that appears to help tune, amplify and dampen neuronal responses to chemosensory inputs from the nasal cavity.

First Human In Vitro Model of Rare Neurodegenerative Condition Created

January 13, 2016

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego have created the first stem cell-derived in vitro cellular model of a rare, but devastating, neurodegenerative condition called Cockayne syndrome (CS).

Three Generations of UC San Diego Physicists Plumb the Microvasculature of the Mammalian Brain

June 11, 2013

Blood vessels within a sensory area of the mammalian brain loop and connect in unexpected ways, a new map created by a team that includes three generations of UC San Diego physicists has revealed.

New Technology from UC San Diego Cracks Fundamental Challenge in Neuroscience

October 10, 2022

A new study by researchers at the University of California San Diego demonstrates a new neurotechnology geared toward answering a long-running question in neuroscience: How can scientists link the separate activity of many single neurons in the brain to the waves and oscillations of the local broade

Patterns in Adolescent Brains Could Predict Heavy Alcohol Use

August 8, 2012

…certain patterns of brain activity may also help predict which teens are at risk of becoming problem drinkers, according to a study by researchers in the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and VA San Diego Healthcare System. Their results will be published in the September issue of…

Conference on Mathematical Theory of Deep Neural Networks (DNN) at Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute

December 6, 2022

On Nov 17-18, 2022, HDSI held its first in-person DeepMath conference on campus since the pandemic, which included several HDSI faculty, postdocs and graduate students. This was the fifth iteration of the conference, which had been hosted virtually during the previous two years.

Altered Neural Circuitry May Lead to Anorexia and Bulimia

June 4, 2013

…School of Medicine, suggests that the altered function of neural circuitry contributes to restricted eating in anorexia and overeating in bulimia. The research may offer a pathway to new and more effective treatments for these serious eating disorders.

Breathing is a Rhythm for Life, and More

April 1, 2016

Respiration is more than just an essential rhythm for life. A new study has found that rhythmic neural patterns that control breathing also coordinate movements of muscles on the mouth and face that serve a variety of sensory, ingestive and social behaviors.
