Computational analysis and modeling based on large-scale data acquired from the brain
Research report (imported) 2016 - Max Planck Institute for Brain Research
Recent technological advancement has opened up a new era of neuroscience research to acquire large-scale datasets from the brain, and to model and interpret them by novel analytical techniques and algorithms. Here, computational and mathematical approaches are used to understand how neural activity shapes circuit organization and dynamics. The focus lies on neural circuits that enable animals to navigate to a desired location in space.
