Welcome to Advanced Topics in Translational Neuroscience

 

Description: Translational Neuroscience applies findings from fundamental laboratory research relating to nervous system structure and function to development of new therapies for neuro-pathological disorders following a mechanistic approach. Translational neuroscience is a rapidly advancing area of biomedical research with massive therapeutic and commercial potential. Translational neuroscience aims at the integration of molecular and cellular approaches, behavioural analysis, and clinical applications in the study of the central nervous system. The course offers training into fundamental aspects of translational neuroscience encompassing molecular, cellular, anatomical and behavioural levels and draws on examples from model organism and patient-based studies. The course combines neurobiology and neuro-psychology to provide a thorough training in the main concepts and methods of translational medicine, with a particular focus on unmet needs in diseases of the nervous system and the challenge of clinical trial design and the regulatory environment for developing better therapies. The translational approach of the course is interdisciplinary and includes a highly diverse set of advanced topics including but not limited to:

  • omics in neuroscience
  • neuronal-glial signalling and plasticity
  • sensory and computational neuroscience
  • neuromodulation
  • neuroimaging
  • neuro- degeneration and regeneration
  • neuropharmacology
  • cognitive and clinical neuroscience

Literature Selected papers and book chapters will be announced to the participants shortly before the course.

Prerequisites Basic knowledge of neuroscience.

Evaluation The course will be evaluated based on written essays of selected topics.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.

Welcome to Biostatistics I

 

Description: This is a basic course in biostatistics and focuses in the application of biostatistics. Statistical methods in medicine, biology, and biomedical engineering are based on experimental designs that may differ from those treated in traditional statistics courses. Especially the design of experiments and the types of data obtained from these experiments are often very different. Problems with sampling, allocation, volunteers, placebo, cross-over designs, repeated measurements, etc. are typical for the biomedical field. Moreover, data widely deviating from normality are the rule, not the exception. This course will consist of two parts: (i) a review of some well-known and widely used parametric and non-parametric methods and discussions of basic designs of experimental studies, and (ii) a practical part where the focus is on applying the methods to relevant and realistic data sets collected from medical and biomedical research. During the course, each participant will develop a statistical analysis plan related to the PhD project. 

The tentative course program is:

  • Descriptive statistics
  • Probability distributions
  • Estimation
  • Hypothesis testing – parametric tests
  • Non-parametric tests
  • One-way ANOVA
  • Cross-tabulations
  • Regression and correlation

Prerequisites Basic knowledge of statistical software Stata or SPSS. We recommend that you bring your own laptop.

Literature B. Kirkwood, J. Sterne, “Essential medical statistics”. Plus hand-outs.

Evaluation The course will be evaluated through the statistical analysis plan.

Welcome to Central nervous system mechanisms of pain inhibition and sensitisation
 

 

Description: The course is aimed at students working on their PhD in the field of pain and nociception. Noxious stimuli evoke sensorimotor reflexes, cortical potentials, responses in the autonomic nervous system, and emotions. Robust and prolonged nociceptive input may induce peripheral and central sensitisation due to inflammation or lesions of the nervous system. Various somatosensory, psychological and pharmacological interventions are able to modulate these correlates of nociception and pain via neuronal networks in the brainstem. These supraspinal circuitries cause descending inhibition and facilitation of pain. The course deals with anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology of the nociceptive system and its modulation by brainstem modulatory circuitries.  

Topics:

  • Peripheral sensitisation
  • Central spinal sensitization
  • Experimental models
  • Supraspinal descending inhibitory systems
  • Descending facilitatory impact on nociception
  • Diffuse noxious inhibitory control

Literature

  • McMahon SB and Koltzenburg M, Textbook of Pain, Elsevier, 2006

Welcome to Immunology

 

Description: Topics

1. Innate Immune cells and innate response

2. B cells and B cell response, including costimulation and regulation, antibodies, type and affinity.

3. T cells and T cell responses, including costimulation and regulation, types of T cell responses cytokines etc. role of adhesion molecules etc.

4. Antigen processing and presentation

5. Immune intervention therapies in cancer, auto immune diseases

6. Stress, metabolism and the immune response

7. Choose 1 of the following 2:

       i. A carpenter is restoring an old building and grabs in an old bacteria-covered nail sticking out. Go over all the processes of the immune response which will happen to fight the infection

       ii. As a passenger of a plane from Asia, you sit beside a guest passenger who is infected with influenza. He sneezes and without knowing it, you get infected with the latest strain of influenza, how will your body’s immune response respond?

8. Lab course in flow cytometry (see below)

The course is built up this way: The students should form groups of up to 5 people (minimum 3 persons per group).  The group gets a list of 7 topics (topics 1-7 above) that should be presented at 7 sessions. Each group makes a PowerPoint presentation for each of these topics and when ready makes an appointment with one of the teachers, presents the presentation and the teachers challenge the students one by one on the material presented.

One session takes normally between 1 and 2 hours. At the end of each session, when the students all have answered and understood the material, then the group passes and can start on the next topic.

If a group does not pass, then the next time the whole group has first to go into more detail on the topic that was insufficient before the next topic can be presented.

At the end of the course there is no exam. All parts have to be passed. The group decides how fast it wants to do the course, could be 1 or 2 sessions a week or spread over a whole semester. The presentation can also be performed via Skype.

The course includes a short hands-on laboratory course in flow cytometry (topic 8). In this, the students will stain cells, perform flow cytometry and analyse their results (approx. 1 1/2 day)

Welcome to Multivariate Data Analysis

 

Description: In many applications data is acquired from multiple sources or is described by multiple variables. Within areas of signal and image processing, biomechanics, clinical decision support, bioinformatics, etc. there is an increasing need for analysing various types of multivariate data containing both dependent (outcome) and independent (predictor) variables. Instead of analysing the data by treating it as a task of multiple univariate problems the methods in this course fully encompasses the task as a single multivariate problem. In effect, the covariate nature of the data is analysed by examining relationships among multiple variables at the same time. The content of the course will cover both representation, transformation, and visualization of multivariate data as well as multivariate methods for statistical analysis, pattern recognition and test evaluation. The tentative course program is:

 

  • Probabilistic classification
    • Bayesian decision theory
    • Multivariate density
  • Non-parametric classification
    • Linear discriminant functions
    • Support Vector Machines
    • Clustering
  • Data analysis and test evaluation
    • Data representation, visualization, transformation (PCA/ICA)
    • ROC analysis
    • Cross validation
  • Multivariate statistics
    • Multivariate analysis of variance
    • Multivariate regression analysis

Literature:

Duda, Hart, Stork, Pattern Classification, 2nd Edition, Wiley
