Neurons in Action 2019

Neurons in Action 2019 is the 4th Nencki Symposium dedicated to plasticity of the nervous system. The symposium is a collaborative initiative of the research groups from the Institute. This year we will host scientists covering several themes we are fascinated by: neurobiology of spatial memory, emotions, addiction, social interactions, feeding, astrocytes, neuromuscular junctions and synaptic plasticity. NiA 2019 is aimed at PhD students, postdocs, older academics as well as all other fans of neurobiology. Our group is organizing one of the sessions: The riddle of human brain plasticity – from sensory deprivation to training (chair: Artur Marchewka) https://neuronsinaction.nencki.gov.pl

Read about aplied research - Sentimenti

Sentimenti is the result of cooperation between linguistic engineering and artificial intelligence specialists that uses deep learning. Solutions implemented in our algorithms are based on the results of scientific research involving over 20.000 Poles. The syntactic-semantic analysis allows to distinguish language units and establish emotive meanings of not only the words used in any publication but also of phrases and the entire text.The emotional analysis includes 8 basic emotions and valence defined on two scales (polarization and stimulation) and can be applied to all words and meanings in Polish. The results of our analyzes, presented as a report, give you the way to decide which emotions are shown in the text, advertising, speech or can be associated with the author of the text.
