Amrita School of Biotechnology PhD students Arathi Rajendran and Sandeep Bodda participated at the 4th IBRO-APRC Bangalore Cognition Workshop held at Bengaluru, India from June 19-July 2, 2016. Arathi and Sandeep were among the 50 participating students among which 30 were outstation participants. Invited speakers were neuroscientists from USA (15), India (15) and from Europe and Canada (6). The course covered modules on vision, memory, brain signals such as local field potentials, brain-machine interfaces, electroencephalography, fMRI, attention and spatial navigation. Arathi and Sandeep also volunteered for eye-tracking tests during the hands on sessions. Amrita’s Computational Neuroscience Lab had recently published an open source toolbox, LFPsim for local field potential reconstruction from Neuronal models.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by Prof. Tsui-Yao Chen, Dean, College of Bioresources, National Ilan University (NIU, Taiwan) and Dr. Bipin Nair, Dean of the Amrita School of Biotechnology on May 23rd, 2016. The Amrita School of Biotechnology established a partnership with the College of Bioresources for academic cooperation and exchange. The two institutions agreed to provide student and faculty exchange programs, engage in joint meetings for research and exchange of scientific materials, and collaborate on publications.  National Ilan University (NIU) (one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Taiwan) was formally founded in 1926 as Taiwan Provincial Ilan School of Agriculture and Forestry. As a center of quality education, NIU is now the only comprehensive national university in Northeast Taiwan offering BA, BS, MA, MS and PhD degrees. NIU moves forward its ninth-decade founding anniversary for a new era.

The School of Biotechnology's, Computational Neuroscience Lab has developed a new open source softwarefor modeling local field potentials in neurons and neural circuits models called LFPsim. Computational Neuroscience is the study of brain, its cells and circuits via mathematical modeling and simulating them in computers or supercomputers. One of the most common types of signals recorded in the brain are extracellular signals and they help understand neural function and to model dysfunction as in the case of neurological disorders. Harilal Parasuram, a PhD student at the Computational Neuroscience Lab and his mentor Prof. Shyam Diwakar have developed an open-source software called LFPsim to automatically model how extracellular signals called local field potentials are generated by neurons. The software was developed to work with models developed with NEURON simulation platform.
