Neurodegenerative diseases are often characterized by the co-deposition of different amyloidogenic proteins, normally defining distinct proteinopathies. An interesting example is represented by prion diseases, in which the presence of PrPSc plaques is often accompanied by aggregates of the tau protein, normally implicated in another class of diseases called tauopathies. How this copresence of amyloidogenic proteins can influence the progression of prion disease is still a matter of debate. ...
A study of rat perceptual sensitivity to multipoint correlations and their representation in the visual cortex
Efficient processing of sensory data requires adapting the neuronal encoding strategy to the statistics of natural stimuli. Previously, Multiple studies showed that local multipoint correlation patterns that are most variable in natural images are also the most perceptually salient for human observers, in a way that is compatible with the efficient coding principle. Understanding the neuronal mechanisms underlying such adaptation to image statistics will require performing invasive experiment...
Transport coefficients relate the off-equilibrium flow of locally conserved quantities, such as charge, energy, and momentum, to gradients of intensive thermodynamic variables in the linear regime. Despite their mathematical formalization dating back to the middle of the last century, when Green and Kubo developed linear response theory, some conceptual subtleties were only recently understood through the formulation of the gauge-invariance and convective-invariance principles. In a nutshell,...
Current trends in high performance computing (HPC) include the use of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) as massively parallel co-processors coupled with CPUs to accelerate the solution of complex physics and engineering problems like computational fluid dynamics (CFD). OpenFOAM is a popular open-source CFD parallel software used by scientists and engineers worldwide. Several attempts have been performed to adapt the codebase to run on GPUs, with variable successes. Recently NVIDIA, CINECA and...
This project aims at implementing a GPU accelerated non-linear solver for hyperelastic neo- Hookian models with contact. The project will build on the PolyFEM , a C++ and Python finite element library (https://polyfem.github.io/), coupled with the Incremental potential contact method which allows accurate simulation of surface-to-surface contact (https://ipc- sim.github.io/). Currently, PolyFEM relies on multithreading libraries like TBB, the strategy is to reengineer the non-linear sol...
