Spikes

Monday 28th of January 2013 at 12:00pm
560 Evans

Most communication in the brain is via spikes. While we understand the spike-generation mechanism of individual neurons, we fail to appreciate the spike-timing code and its role in neural computations. The speaker starts with simple models of neuronal spiking and bursting, describes small neuronal circuits that learn spike-timing code via spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP), and finishes with biologically detailed and anatomically accurate large-scale brain models.
