Material from Workshop


This workshop will study the mechanisms and control of hormone release, ranging from the receptor level through to whole body control, pulsatile secretions and dynamical disease. Although each of these topics has been studied in detail, there have been relatively few attempts to study the coordination and intersections of the mechanisms at different levels.

The workshop topics will include models for receptor adaptation, bursting electrical activity, action potentials in neuroendocrine cells, the importance of calcium for secretion, mechanisms of pulsatile hormonal secretion, hormonal control systems, whole-body feedback processes and dynamical diseases.

These topics are studied using a variety of mathematical techniques, of which ordinary differential equations, delay equations, bifurcation theory and qualitative analysis are the most important.

Tutorial

There will be a tutorial on Sunday, the 14th of February. The tutorial will consist of four one-hour talks.

TUTORIAL SCHEDULE

All talks are in Lecture Hall EE/CS 3-180 unless otherwise noted.
