BACKGROUND Identification of stage-specific changes in brain network of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) is critical for rationally designed therapeutics that delays the progression of the disease. However, pathological neural processes and their resulting changes in brain network topology with disease progression are not clearly known. METHODS The(More)
Determining the fundamental architectural design of complex nervous systems will lead to significant medical and technological advances. Yet it remains unclear how nervous systems evolved highly efficient networks with near optimal sharing of pathways that yet produce multiple distinct behaviors to reach the organism's goals. To determine this, the nematode(More)
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the master biological clock of circadian rhythms, has been highly interested for biological rhythms in animals. Physiological and molecular biological studies [1-3] and computational modeling approach [4] have investigated channels contributing to circadian rhythms of spike firing frequency. The aim of this study was to(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate changes in network structural properties and functional perturbations of the C. elegans network which were induced by simulated lesions of the neural network through removals of each single neuron (attacks). We analyzed complete neu-ronal wiring data (i.e. connectome) of the nematode C. elegans [1] consisting of 279(More)

BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated inconsistent neurophysiologic effects of ketamine, although discrepant findings might relate to differences in doses studied, brain regions analyzed, coadministration of other anesthetic medications, and resolution of the electroencephalograph. The objective of this study was to characterize the dose-dependent(More)
