    Gauge theories are not only important and fundamental in modern physics, they also present some hard, challenging puzzled waiting to be solved.
    In the recent years, quantum information, optics and atomic physics have proposed two new approaches for studying such theories: tensor networks studies and quantum simulation.
    In my talk I will discuss the latter, present some analog quantum simulation schemes using ultracold atoms, and focus on a recent, digital formulation of lattice gauge theories that decomposes four-body interactions from two-body ones, allowing for digital quantum simulation schemes with atomic systems.

    Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that play fundamental roles in pivotal cellular processes including energy production, metabolism, and apoptosis. Our scientific interests evolve around topics related to how these different mitochondrial processes are coordinated to regulate cellular stress responses and cellular fate. Over the years, we discovered a new pathway composed of the nuclear ATM kinase, pro-apoptotic BID, and mitochondrial MTCH2, connecting mitochondria metabolism to stress signals originating from the cell surface and nucleus. More recently, we revealed that MTCH2 is involved in regulating mitochondrial dynamics/fusion, providing a clue to the mechanism by which the pathway regulates mitochondrial function.

    Toshiya Endo is a professor of Faculty of Life Sciences, Kyoto Sangyo University. He received his PhD degree for his NMR study on snake neurotoxins at Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Faculty of Science, the University of Tokyo in 1982. He became an assistant professor at Department of Chemistry, College of Technology, Gunma University in 1982, was promoted to an associate professor of the same department in 1987, and then became an associate professor of Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Gunma University in 1989. In the meantime (1986-1988), he was a visiting scientist at Biocenter, the University of Basel, Switzerland, where he joined Jeff Schatz’s group to start his work on protein import into mitochondria. In 1989, he moved to Nagoya University to become a PI as an associate professor at Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Nagoya University, and became a full professor in 1991 at the same department. In 1996, he became a professor of Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science, Nagoya University. In 2003-2008, he was a project-based faculty of the Institute for Advanced Research, Nagoya University. He had been the leader of the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research in Priority Area from MEXT, ‘Protein Community’ (2007-2012), and now the recipient of the CREST grant from JST for 2012-2017. After research and education life for 24 years at Nagoya University, he recently moved to Kyoto Sangyo University in April 2014

    In my talk I will discuss several recent research directions that we have taken to explore the different principles underlying the construction and control of complex human upper arm and gait movements. In these studies we combine experimental recordings of human movements with the development of mathematical models aiming at providing rigorous quantitative descriptions of human movement and investigating the underlying neural control strategies. One important topic I will focus on is motor compositionality, exploring the nature of the motor primitives underlying the construction of complex movements at different levels of the motor hierarchy and the topic of motor coordination and the mapping between different control levels. The second topic I will focus on is motion kinematics and timing, describing a series of behavioral and brain imaging studies demonstrating the strong coupling between motion production and perception. Finally, I will illustrate the application of the new gained understanding in studies of different neurological movement disorders.
