Treating Neurodegenerative Disorders: Towards Detailed Pathophysiology and Precision Medicine

Published Jun 7, 2018

The following paper reviews current literature on disease etiology, pathophysiology, and therapeutic options of neurodegenerative disorder (NDs). We first discuss current directions of disease management and treatment, and highlight technical hindrances of current gene therapy-based treatments as well as significant ethical, regulatory, and efficacy-based concerns present in current stem cell treatment options for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s… Read more

Low-Level Visual Processing Allows Humans to React to Animate Objects: Binding Memory as a Key Subsystem of Biological Motion Detection

Published Apr 18, 2015

Abstract We review the literature to date on biological motion detection and its important prerequisite, human binding memory. Binding memory is the system for combining features like shape, color and size into coherent visual objects, and tracking these objects through time in short-term memory. This in turn makes possible biological motion detection, which is crucial… Read more
