Current projects on developmental neuroscience: Highlight the "GAPS"

We would like everyone coming to identify an area of their interest that is understudied in the field, and how research evidence exists to suggest a new hypothesis or path of study relevant to that topic. We will go around and share these amongst the group during the meetup.

    I enjoyed meeting Meghan and Zarrar very much and hope to have an opportunity to meet some other group members during the coming meetings! Lots of topics from children and technology to the way we think came up and I'd love to extend the conversation to others from various backgrounds.

      It was good meeting you too Gayle (and others).

      Here are two videos related to things we discussed:

      1. A teacher who has some great ideas on teaching math: http://www.ted.com/ta...­

      2. Ed TED is really awesome if you don't know about it. It brings together animators and educators to make great 5-10 min videos. Here is one that takes a historical perspective to help understand an aspect of biology

    I will talk about research on learning from mutual gaze and joint attention

    http://www.infancyresearch.com/PDFs/2006_Eyecontactinfluencesneuralprocessingofemotional.pdf

    and suggest that we know a great deal about the way that social contexts influence learning in babies and children... but we don't know as much about how the design of environments influences joint attention contexts and learning .. We are creating better environments for families "Learn to Live. Live to Learn" @ www.howbabieslearn.com

    I will bring up the topic of synapse formation and maintenance during early development, and how diseases of intellectual disability in humans are reflected in an altered structure and function of synapses. Single gene mouse models of these alterations will be discussed, with specific reference to mouse models of autism.

      Yes I will discuss how one theory of Fragile X syndrome, which is the leading genetic cause of autism known today, is of lack of pruning in development.

      As a preview to my topic of interest, I see a gap in understanding how several area of cognitive disabilities share pathways and targets that may be treated similarly. For example, there are shared gene mutations in schizophrenia, autism, and mental retardation. What is the basis for the behavioral endophenotypes associated with these diverse conditions? This should stimulate discussion.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
