Talk by Nanna MacAulay

  • 23/06-2017 |
  • Nanna MacAulay |
  • MR Conference Room |
  • Time 9:00 |

On Friday the 23rd of June, Nanna MacAulay will give talk entitled: Cotransporter-mediated production of cerebrospinal fluid

The cerebrospinal fluid is continuously produced at a rate of ~500 ml/day in the adult human. The majority of this fluid production takes place across the specialized epithelial cell layer of the choroid plexus, by hitherto unresolved molecular mechanisms. The talk will focus on our identification of the Na+/K+/2Cl- cotransporter as an unconventional water transport protein and its significant contribution to CSF production in rodents.

PhD Course in Human Brain Stimulation

  • 13-17/3-17 |
  • Various speakers |
  • Hvidovre Hospital |
  • Time TBA |

This PhD course provides a systematic and comprehensive overview over current brain stimulation techniques, highlighting their neuroscientific and therapeutic potential. The students will be introduced to the various stimulation techniques (e.g. optogenetics, transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial current stimulation, deep-brain stimulation) and will gain in-depth knowledge about the basic biophysical mechanisms and the most commonly used neuroscientific and therapeutic stimulation techniques. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical sessions and demonstrations. The course will consist of introductory lectures in the morning (three to four lectures per day), followed by a student presentation of the lecture highlights and supervised practical exercises and demonstrations based on different brain stimulation techniques in the afternoon.

MRI Acquisition Course 2016

  • 04/11 - 16/12-2016 |
  • Lars G. Hanson |
  • DRCMR Conference Room |
  • Time 13:15-15:45 |

The aim of the course is to provide a basis for understanding MRI measurements, pitfalls and literature. The course covers introductory MRI acquisition in a series of ~6 weekly interactive lectures starting November 4th, 2016, and running almost weekly Fridays 13:15 to 15:45 until December 16th 2016. The lectures cover MR basics, acquisition methods and parameters with a focus on understanding. Active participation is required.

The course starts at a level requiring little or no MR experience, and a technical background is not required. The target audience is employees and students at the MR department but the course is open and free for external participants. DRCMR employees, students and co-workers are given priority if the number of participants is limited due to space constraints. Participation is free but registration is required.
