New study in Annals of Neurology is Paper of the Month

New study in Annals of Neurology is Paper of the Month

Our new article on cognitive outcomes in anti-NMDAR encephalitis lead by Josephine was awarded the Paper of the Month at the Center for Stroke Research at Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin!

Based on a comprehensive longitudinal neuropsychological assessment, we find that cognitive deficits are the main contributor to long-term morbidity in patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis. These impairments are most pronounced for memory and executive functions and can persist beyond functional neurological recovery. Find out more about the longitudinal trajectories of deficits and predictors for cognitive outcomes in the open access full-text here.

New preprint – A spatiotemporal complexity architecture of human brain activity

New preprint – A spatiotemporal complexity architecture of human brain activity

The human brain is a complex network. Ever since the first description of “functional connectivity” in the 1990s, network neuroscience has emerged as one of the leading approaches to study the brain, including unparalleled international collaborations like the Human Connectome Project (HCP).

While our understanding of the connectome is rapidly increasing, some fundamental questions about brain networks remain: How does a functional connection between two brain regions form? Why are some regions more functionally connected than others? And what determines the spatial and temporal organization of the network?

In our latest preprint, we shed some light on these questions through complexity analysis of resting-state data from the HCP. In this manuscript, we report a mechanism by which the brain’s network architecture arises from spontaneous episodes of neural regularity. These episodes become visible as “complexity drops” and provide a unifying explanation for many known properties of the human brain, including functional connectivity, brain states, structure-function relationships, and network hierarchies. For more on this human “complexome”, check out the preprint!

New study published in JAMA Oncology!

2021-07-14T09:28:04+02:00

New study published in JAMA Oncology!

Our recent article shows that brain-targeting autoantibodies found in lung cancer patients may be responsible for cancer-related cognitive impairment.

In this prospective, cross-sectional study we included 167 patients with lung cancer. Brain-directed autoantibodies were found in 36.5% of all patients: 19.8% had known neuronal autoantibodies and 16.8% had autoantibodies against currently unknown antigens that were detected by immunohistochemistry. Cognitive impairment was found in as much as 67.0% of patients. Importantly, patients with neuronal autoantibodies had increased odds of cognitive impairment compared with patients without autoantibodies. Interestingly, autoantibodies against currently unknown neuronal antigens were also associated with higher odds of cognitive impairment.

Therefore, our study suggests that neuronal autoantibodies might represent a pathogenic factor in cancer-related cognitive impairment among patients with lung cancer.

There is a JAMA Oncology podcast interview with Frederik and Carsten at: https://edhub.ama-assn.org/jn-learning/audio-player/18621621 and an editorial about our study at: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaoncology/article-abstract/2781393

New paper in Annals of Neurology on clinical and MRI outcomes in pediatric NMDAR encephalitis

2020-09-28T12:30:03+02:00

New paper in Annals of Neurology: Clinical and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Outcome Predictors in Pediatric Anti–N-Methyl-D-Aspartate Receptor Encephalitis

Longitudinal volumetric MRI analyses revealed significant brain volume loss and failure of age-expected brain growth in pediatric anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. Abnormal MRI findings, a clinical presentation with sensorimotor deficits, and a treatment delay of over 4 weeks were identified as predictors of poor clinical outcome.

Archiv and Ablage

Archiv and Ablage

[Written by Johanna on 2019/06/20]

The title will probably be the key word that appears in the wiki and is thus directly linked to your entry.

Table of content

  1. What is it for?
    • Ablage
    • Archiv

  3. How do I store my data there?

What is it for?

The Ablage and Archiv can be used to store your data. There are a few differences between the two:

Ablage

If you want to back-up data from a running project or want to save files/data your currently working with on a Charité-Server, you can use this folder. The Ablage has space for 8TB.

Archiv

Additionally to the Datenablage, we now have access to the Archiv (10TB). The Archiv can be used for data which won’t be modified anymore. Everybody should think about what they can put in the Archiv to save space in the Datenablage, e.g. already finished projects.

How do I get access?

Ablage

To store data in the Ablage, you need to get permission by the Charité IT.

You must fill out this form: https://intranet.charite.de/fileadmin/user_upload/microsites/gb/it/sys/Beantragung-Rechte.pdf

Johanna/Leonie can help you if you should have questions.

You then find the folder DATEN here:

(S:) CHARITE-DATEN-ABLAGE

– AG

-AG-Finke

-Daten

Archiv

Because we seriously cannot modify the data once it is uploaded in the Archiv, we have to be very careful what we put there. Everybody who got granted access to the Datenablage is also able to read the Archiv. However, only Maron and Johanna/Leonie have the possibility to upload data.

How do I store my data there?

Ablage

The folder structure is the following: \NAME\PROJECT

Please keep in mind that the space is limited to 8TB for the whole lab. To keep track of the Datenablage, Carsten made this google doc:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a956pDa-BgsnxDtLHnEnZSvzaWu471Fp3_y3dLyh7tQ/edit#gid=0

Please put all the relevant information concerning the data you want to store in this spreadsheet.

Archiv

If you want to store data in the Archiv

(1) put your data in the folder ‘ready_for_archiv’ in the Datenablage

(2) Write a mail to Maron and/or Johanna/Leonie and we will move the data to the Archiv
