Highlights of theTN2 Webinar series – Research program edition
- 9 webinars in a timeframe from October 2021 till June 2022
- Each month a new (lunch) webinar
- Each webinar addresses one of the nine Amsterdam Neuroscience research programs
- Cross-organizational: with 1 presentation from the Amsterdam Neuroscience network and 1 presentation from an external organization
Brain Imaging – Natalia Petridou & Henk(-Jan) Mutsaerts
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of March 17, 2022 on brain imaging. Natalia Petridou (UMC Utrecht) start with a presentation on vascular and neuronal contributions to BOLD fMRI. Continued by Henk(-Jan) Mutsaerts (Amsterdam UMC) with a presentation on his VASCODE project: Developing ASL perfusion MRI as cerebroVAScular biomarker of COgnitive Decline.
Neuroinfection & -inflammation – Marianna Bugiani & Zoé van Kempen
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of February 17, 2022 on Neuroinfection & -inflammation. Marianna Bugiani (Amsterdam UMC) started the her presentation on COVID-19 and the brain: during and after the disease. Followed by Zoé van Kempen (Amsterdam UMC, MS Center Amsterdam) who shares the lessons learnt on Multiple Sclerosis during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Neurovascular Disorders – Ed van Bavel & Michael Hill
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of January 21, 2022 on Neurovascular Disorders. Ed van Bavel (Amsterdam UMC) started the webinar with his presentation ‘Reperfusion after Acute Ischemic Stroke: the role of the cerebral microcirculation’. Followed by Michael Hill (University of Calgary and Foothills Medical Centre) who shares his research findings on stroke neuroprotection.
Compulsivity, Impulsivity and Attention – Ingo Willuhn & Martijn Figee
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of December 16, 2021 on Compulsivity, Impulsivity and Attention. Ingo Willuhn (Amsterdam UMC & Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience) kicks off with his presentation: Exploring the brain mechanisms of deep-brain stimulation in a rodent model for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Followed by Martijn Figee (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) who shares his research findings on personalized deep brain stimulation for OCD.
Neurodegeneration – Monty Silverdale & Anouk Rijs
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of November 25, 2021 on Neurodegeneration. Monty Silverdale (Manchester University) kicks off with his presentation: Diagnosing the Scent of Parkinson’s with Mass Spectrometry and Joy. He is followed by Anouk Rijs (VU Amsterdam) who shares her research findings on novel advances in structural characterization methods: Understanding, probing and controlling neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s Disease.
Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms - Aniko Korosi & Sophie Layé
Watch the TN2 Webinar – Research program edition of October 14, 2021 on Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms. In the first part, Aniko Korosi (Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences, UvA) talks early-life stress induced cognitive decline and the role for fatty acids and neuroinflammation. She is followed by Sophie Layé (Université de Bordeaux and NutriNeuro) who presents her research findings on dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids and neuroimmune interactions and the role of oxylipins.
