Palestra do doutor Solaiman Shokur agendada para o dia 06 de Julho (sexta-feira) às 10h30min em São Bernardo do Campo (auditório A003). Dr. Shokur é pesquisador sênior do Projeto Andar de Novo (http://aasdap.org.br/projetos/projeto-andar-de-novo/) e seus interesses de pesquisa incluem restauração das funções motoras e sensoriais por meio da interface cérebro-máquina. Nesse dia, Dr. Shokur apresentará as pesquisas desenvolvidas por ele e coordenadas pelo professor Nicolelis.

Segue abaixo breve resumo da palestra e biografia.

Title:
Sensorimotor improvement in chronic complete paraplegic patients after a training integrating brain-machine interfaces, visuotactile feedback and locomotion.

Description: 
A report from the world health organization (WHO) reveals that roughly 200'000 new cases of spinal cord injury (SCI) occur worldwide every year.  SCI causes a wide array of the devastating motor, sensory, and autonomic deficits. There is currently no systematic rehabilitation approach for patients diagnosed with complete paraplegia due to SCI. 
In this talk, I will present two techniques developed in our laboratory: brain-machine interfaces (direct brain-control of virtual or robotic legs) and sensory substitution. I will show, how, after a training combining these techniques, we observed unprecedented improvement rates in a group of 12 complete paraplegic patients in term of sensorimotor functions in their lower-limbs, but also, and maybe more importantly, for the control of their bladder, bowel and sexual functions.

Dr. Solaiman Shokur is an Afghan-born Swiss neuroengineer. In 2004, he obtained his master at the Polytechnique of Lausanne (Switzerland, EPFL) in computer science with a specialization in bio-inspired robotics. In 2013, he obtained his Ph.D. at the EPFL under the supervision of Prof. Bleuler (EPFL) and Prof. Miguel Nicolelis (Duke University).  During this period he developed the first Virtual reality-based brain-machine interface for monkeys. His work contributed to understanding how the brain represents a new extension to the body.  

Dr. Shokur is the co-author of several reference papers in the domain of Brain-machine interfaces and artificial sensory feedback, with publications in Nature, Science translational medicine, PNAS, and Scientific Reports.

He is currently the senior research coordinator of the Walk Again Project (WAP) at the AASDAP neurorehabilitation laboratory in São Paulo. 

Amanhã, quarta-feira, no âmbito do projeto de extensão “Biotecnologia: Polêmicas e Progressos” nós teremos a palestra da profa. Maria Lucia Zaidan Dagli que é a atual presidente da CTNBio (Comissão Técnica Nacional de Biossegurança).

A profa. Maria Lucia falará sobre "O papel da CTNBio no Desenvolvimento das áreas de biossegurança e biotecnologia do Brasil".

A CTNBio presta apoio técnico consultivo e assessoramento ao Governo Federal em políticas relacionadas a Organismos Geneticamente Modificados no que se refere, dentre outras coisas, ao cultivo, manipulação, transporte, comercialização, consumo, armazenamento, liberação e descarte de OGMs.

Acredito que seja um tema que intriga e/ou interessa a muitos membros da comunidade, portanto, fica o convite abrangente para que participem da palestra e posterior discussões.

Data: 04/07

Webinar:
How to Become an Author: Effective Communication and Publication
 
 
 
Dear colleague,
 
 

 

Do you want to publish your findings but are not sure where to start? In this webinar Charlotte Cross will provide you with an overview of writing and publishing journal articles and books. In the first half of the session, you will learn about the differences between a research journal, a review journal and a mega journal, and what you have to consider for each step on the road to writing your journal article, journal selection and submission, and peer review. The second half is devoted to book authors. You will learn about all Springer Nature book formats, how the production and the publication process works, peer review, and the after care and evaluation of your book’s performance.


Webinar:        How to Become an Author: Effective Communication and Publication Strategies

Date:              Wednesday, 25th April 2018 
Time:              3:00 - 3:45 pm Brasília (BRT)

                        1:00 - 1:45 pm Bogota (COT)

                        1:00 - 1:45 pm Mexico City (UTC)

 

The presentation will be in English. 

Room capacity is restricted to 500 participants. To make sure that you will be able to connect, please log in a few minutes before the start of the session.
     
  

This webinar is designed for researchers from academic institutions and industry who would like to publish their findings and/or learning about scientific publishing.
