15 хвилин про старіння - Ігор Флиста

15.12.2018, Тернополь

Що таке старіння? Чи всі живі організми однаково йому підвладні? Чи можна сповільнити або зупинити цей процес? У цій лекції ми розглянемо внутрішні механізми, що викликають старіння організму, і які методи впливу на нього пропонує наука.

15 minutes about Mini-Brains in a Dish - Radhika Menon

22.02.2018, Munich

A personalized, made-to-order, mini human brain? Why not? All we need is some skin or hair cells from a person! Learn how scientists are making mini brains (boring scientific term: cerebral organoids) and how they are using them to study brain development and disease.

15 minutes about Optogenetics - Evgeny Resnik

16.11.2017, Munich

Our brain processes information from the surrounding world and drives our emotions and behavior. Despite many years of research we still lack understanding how billions of neurons work together to enable this driving function. This lack of knowledge is to a large extent due to our limited ability to control activity of individual neurons. Optogenetics, a new technique capable of controlling the brain with light, has revolutionized neuroscience and opens new ways to treat neurological disorders in humans.

15 minutes about Cognitive Reserve - Dian Anggraini

16.11.2017, Munich

Cognitive reserve explains how some people tend to be more resilient to brain changes or damages than others. Greater understanding of this concept could lead to interventions to slow cognitive ageing or reduce the risk of dementia.

15 minutes about Bacterial Genetics - Zachary Ardern

26.10.2017, Munich

Our bodies contain trillions of bacterial cells. What do they do, and how can we know? Are bacteria one day going to destroy us all? How do they adapt to become resistant to the drugs that are meant to kill them? To answer each of these questions we'll need to know something about the rapidly evolving field of bacterial genetics.

15 минут про Живое и Неживое - Елена Варнакова

21.10.2017, Moscow

Вы когда-нибудь задавались вопросом: «Что такое жизнь?». На первый взгляд кажется, что это весьма философское понятие. Но на самом деле мы сталкиваемся с ним гораздо чаще, чем вы думаете. Многие прикладные задачи были бы нерешаемы без знания того, как отличить живое от неживого. Подробнее об этом слушайте в моей лекции.
