Molecular Modelling of Human Brain Function in Biological Technologies
1. Introduction. Biological systems are made up of many spatial and temporal scales, each rich and complex. Biology at each scale integrates information from strata above and below. 1 There are different types of scale in biological systems. Southern and colleagues used the organisation of biological systems to classify the biological processes in them into a Cited by: [11,12] nature of structure–function mappings in the brain. To successfully map structure to function in the human brain, we urgently need a comprehensive, detailed structural model of neuronal units and their connections. Connectional models of the human brain are scarce and poorly deﬁned , and they are largely based on extrapolating. Conclusion: At least some biological factors, the abnormal function of which leads to the development of the autistic brain, may regulate th e release of 5-HT from the gut years after birth. If the present model is correct, it will allow future efforts to be focused on a limited number of.

Modelling biological systems is a significant task of systems biology and mathematical biology. Computational systems biology aims to develop and use efficient algorithms, data structures, visualization and communication tools with the goal of computer modelling of biological systems.
It involves the use of computer simulations of biological systems, including cellular subsystems. Molecular Brain is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers manuscripts on all aspects of studies on the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, and systems level providing a forum for scientists to communicate their findings.
Molecular brain research is a rapidly expanding research field in which integrative approaches at the genetic, molecular, cellular. Over the last decade, DNA-sequencing technologies have advanced tremendously, culminating in the deciphering of the complete human genome in (Landers et al.
; Venter et al. ).This achievement is a major milestone in the understanding of human biology, as the human genome provides a catalogue of all human genes and associated molecules that are Cited by: Molecular neuroscience is a branch of neuroscience that observes concepts in molecular biology applied to the nervous systems of animals.
The scope of this subject covers topics such as molecular neuroanatomy, mechanisms of molecular signaling in the nervous system, the effects of genetics and epigenetics on neuronal development, and the molecular basis for neuroplasticity.
Therefore, biological assessment of brain function at different levels (molecular, cellular, circuit) is required. Importantly, an expansion towards whole-brain functions can now be envisaged thanks to the impressive advances obtained in the field of structural and functional brain imaging and stimulation.
Human Molecular Biology is an introduction to the molecular basis of health and disease for the new generation of life scientists and medical students. By integrating cutting-edge molecular genetics and biochemistry with the latest clinical information, the book weaves a pattern that unifies biology with syndromes, genetic pathways with Cited by: Prospects for Studying Human Brain Evolution in a Comparative Framework.
As pointed out above, there has been substantial progress in describing human brain evolution in recent years. Nevertheless, we are still far from understanding how the evolution of some hallmark changes is rooted in genetic, molecular and cellular by: The human brain is comprised of a number of different regions.
Each of these regions are vitally important with highly specialized functions. The brain is roughly divided into three parts which include the following: Forebrain; Midbrain; Brain stem or hind brain; The central part of the brain includes the brain stem and the midbrain.
Its focus is on the function of the system as a whole, rather than on individual parts. This exciting new arena applies mathematical modeling and engineering methods to the study of biological systems. This book is the first of its kind to focus on the newly emerging field of systems biology with an emphasis on computational approaches.
This section of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) aims to rapidly publish contributions on all aspects of molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemical and genetic encourage the submission of manuscripts that provide novel and mechanistic insights and papers that report significant advances in the fields.
