Fondecyt 11190822: Model-based analysis of a novel modality of spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic pain

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established therapy to relieve pain in subjects with chronic pain. In this therapy, electrical currents are delivered to the dorsal column (DC) of the spinal cord via electrodes implanted in the epidural space.

CINV Postdoctoral Fellowship: An integrated biophysical network model of motion direction selectivity in the mammalian retina

Detection of motion and motion direction in the visual mammalian system is observed at processing stages as early as the retinal circuitry (Barlow & Levick 1965). Direction-selective ganglion cells (DSGC) in the retina exhibit higher firing activity in response to visual stimuli moving along a preferred direction, and little to none activity for stimuli moving in the opposite direction (Schachter et al.
