Central nervous system

View this topic in
The central nervous system (CNS) is the part of the nervous system that integrates the information that it receives from, and coordinates the activity of, all parts of the bodies of bilaterian animals—that is, all multicellular animals except sponges and radially symmetric animals such as jellyfish.

  • Work toward real-time control of a cortical neural prothesis

    Implantable devices that interact directly with the human nervous system have been gaining acceptance in the field of medicine since the 1960's. More recently, as is noted by the FDA approval of a deep brain stimulator for movement disorders, interest has shifted toward direct communication with the central nervous system (CNS). Deep brain stimulation (DBS) can have a remarkable effect on the lives of those with certain types of disabilities such as Parkinson's disease, Essential Tremor, and dystonia. To correct for many of the motor impairments not treatable by DBS (e.g. quadriplegia), it would be desirable to extract from the CNS a control signal for movement. A direct interface with motor cortical neurons could provide an optimal signal for restoring movement. In order to accomplish this, a real-time conversion of simultaneously recorded neural activity to an online command for movement is required. A system has been established to isolate the cellular activity of a group of motor neurons and interpret their movement-related information with a minimal delay. The real-time interpretation of cortical activity on a millisecond time scale provides an integral first step in the development of a direct brain-computer interface (BCI).

  • Frequency-dependent examination of homosynaptic long-term depression in the freely moving rat

    The strength and direction (LTP or LTD) of synaptic responses (i.e., synaptic plasticity) within the hippocampus resulting from activation of afferent inputs vary depending upon the frequency and pattern of such activation, as well, as, the order in which convergent afferents are activated. Specifically, such stimulation may result in LTP of activated synapses, or, conversely, in LTD of synaptic activity. The present study was designed to: (1) determine whether stimulation frequencies effective at inducing LTD in vitro and in the anesthetized preparations are also as effective in the freely moving adult rat, and (2) at what frequency does the shift from homosynaptic LTD to LTP occur. Population spike amplitude and EPSP slope measures were recorded in the dentate gyrus following low-frequency stimulation of the lateral perforant pathway at various frequencies during experiments conducted on adult freely moving rats. Preliminary results indicate that LTD can reliably be induced in freely moving animals and that there is a frequency-dependent shift in induction of LTP/LTD.

  • Presentation session: Neuroanatomy, neurogeneration, and modeling: “Relating optical signals induced by infrared neural stimulation to electrophysiology”

    Infrared neural stimulation (INS) is well characterized for the peripheral nervous system; however, translation to the central nervous system (CNS) presents a new set of challenges which require us to consider different anatomy, multiple cell types, and the physiology associated with structures in the CNS. This study represents the first attempt to translate INS to in vivo stimulation of the CNS. The results from this study show that INS generates intrinsic optical signals of similar magnitude and shape associated with well characterized mechanical stimuli. Electrophysiology analysis indicates INS evokes inhibitory responses in rat somatosensory cortex. The implications of this work could lead to neural implants which allows for single cell stimulation making it possible to design closed loop neural prosthetics.

  • Efficient stimulation inducing neural activity in retinal implant

    Electrical stimulation to the nervous system is important in visual prostheses. In this study, we stimulated the central nervous system of an experimental animal in various ways, and the neural response has been evaluated from both biological and computational points of view. Experimental results have revealed that the anode/cathode distance seems to play an important role to reduce the energy consumption.

  • Storage of sparse-coded hetero-associations with the competitive synaptic growth network

    The authors apply the competitive synaptic growth network (SGN) to the storage and recall of sparse coded binary heteroassociations. The SGN is a two-layer, feedforward neural network utilizing complex neurons having finite extent and active dendritic structures. The performance measure for the SGN is the number of connections needed to store noiseless sparse coded heteroassociations and perfectly recall these associations when given a (perhaps noisy) input vector. Using the same number of network connections, the SGN clearly outperforms the benchmark nonholographic associative memory applied to the same problem.<<ETX>>

  • Microparticulate focal drug delivery to the peripheral and central nervous systems

    Focal drug delivery using microparticles holds great promise in treating specific disorders in the peripheral and central nervous systems. In the peripheral nervous system, controlled release technology is readily applicable to providing prolonged nerve blockade, while in the central nervous system there is increasing interest in its uses for epilepsy and movement disorders.
