  community member   < less Study Group

TED is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to "ideas worth spreading," via powerful talks. TED began as a conference investigating topics where technology, entertainment, and design converged. Today, TED hosts remarkable speakers from all disciplines addressing a broad variety of fascinating topics before live, thoughtfully engaged audiences.
In each session we will view two TED talks as a group and will engage in a discussion about what we saw. Facilitators Lee Pizzimenti and Terry Smith will pick the first two talks to be discussed on the first day, and members of the group will select talks for further sessions.
You can google TED talks to sample the offerings and find background information.
This study group will meet for two hours on Tuesdays from October 29 through December 3.

"Restoring Movement via Electrodes Implanted in the Brain": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at U-M (50+).

  community member   < less Study Group

The dream of using signals from the brain to restore motor control in people with paralysis or amputation is getting closer to reality. Electrodes that monitor or send signals to neurons in the brain have been reduced in size until they are no bigger than the neurons themselves, and arrays can interface with hundreds of individual neurons.
The course will discuss this area of research and highlight one such application, where 8-Ám carbon electrodes implanted in the finger control areas of the brain are being developed to control movement of individual fingers. Cynthia Chestek, instructor, is an associate professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Michigan, where she runs the Cortical Neural Prosthetics Laboratory. This Study Group will meet Tuesday, 1:30-3:00 pm on October 29.

Both chronic pain and substance use disorders are major public health challenges, and treating concurrent pain and substance addiction is especially challenging. People with pain deserve relief, and the good news is there are strategies for acute and chronic pain management that are safe and effective for people at risk of or in recovery from substance use disorders. This presentation will discuss various methods of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain management and their relative risks and benefits, and describe creative approaches to effective pain relief for people in recovery from substance use disorders.
