Neuroscience and AI with Paul Middlebrooks (BS 155)

Paul Middlebrooks host of Brain-Inspired podcast BS 155 is an interview with neuroscientist Paul Middlebrooks, host of the Brain-Inspired podcast. We explore the main theme of his show, which is the intersection between neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI).We explore topics such as Deep Learning and the challenges of interdisciplinary science. Neural nets and other forms of AI may be inspired by real neurons, but they are actually very different. On the other hand the scientists working AI have developed techniques for dealing with large amounts of data. These techniques have potential for dealing with the large amounts of data now being generated in neuroscience. One large challenge is that both fields have their own jargon and it is not easy to be competent in both fields. That is why I appreciate Paul Middlebrooks effort to make Artificial Intelligence more accessible for those of us who are interested in neuroscience.

To identify the facial nerve during such procedures, we used a fluorescence-assisted near-infrared camera. Indocyanine green (ICG)-assisted direct visualization was used intraoperatively in 13 cases. The procedures included excision of neurofibromas (n=10) an...

More than 400,000 people were wounded and required specialist care. Paul Tessier, a leading French plastic surgeon and pioneering craniofacial surgeon, was involved in several missions to Iran and operated on a vast cohort of patients with complex wa...

ConclusionPositron emission computed tomography is useful for the diagnosis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, improving the patient's staging especially when detecting cervical and distant metastases. Therefore, we consider that the use of positron emission computed tomography for the staging of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma is a diagnostic test to be considered.ResumoIntroduçãoO carcinoma espinocelular de cabeça e pescoço é o sétimo tumor maligno mais comum.

In this work, we aimed to investigate whether natural compounds from a Traditional Chinese Medicine prescription called San-Huang-Xie-Xin-Tang exert its clinical efficacy by inhibiting inflammasome activation and the underlying mechanism. The inhibitory effects of compounds on...

This study included 20 pharmaceutical materials, and each material was characterized by 44 properties, capturing 880 data points. The stress conditions of a commonly used feeder hopper were calculated using the Janssen model for six selected materials. Multivariate analysis, such as principal component analysis and clustering analysis, was used to explore the knowledge space of the material library. Statistically similar and dissimilar material properties were evaluated for material feeding performance from a loss-in-weight feeder to test utility of the material library. 20 materials included in this study show a wide rang...

Williams, Feng ZhangAbstractImplants offer the opportunity to improve patient adherence and real-world outcomes. However, most polymers used today are hydrophobic and limit drug properties suitable for development. Thermoplastic poly(urethanes) (TPUs) form pores upon hydration and may facilitate the development of implants containing drugs exhibiting broadly different properties. We sought to investigate the effect of drug physicochemical properties...
