When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: BIOLOGY: Neuronal Systems, Modeling in SNNAP
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: James Watrous
ABSTRACT: This session will introduce users to SNNAP (Simulator for Neural Networks and Action Potentials). The Hodgkin-Huxley model of neural activity will be demonstrated, and simple simulations of Na and K channel blocks will be shown. The construction of neural networks will be shown along with the role of both chemical and electrical synapses and their effect on network behavior. Finally, the use of small-world networks to investigate circadian rhythms and epileptic seizures will be demonstrated. SNNAP was developed at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston in the department of Neurobiology and Anatomy and is freely available (http://nba.uth.tmc.edu/snnap/).
Prerequisite: "Computational Biology Overview" session or equivalent.
