Cellular and Synaptic Dynamics

We use detailed and reduced models of single cell and synaptic dynamics to investigate how the nonlinear and stochastic properties of neurons contribute to information transfer.

Network Dynamics

Investigations of large networks of coupled neurons show how cortical wiring impacts the dynamics and computations performed by the brain.


We use large scale models of the brain to probe how the mechanics of neural processing supports cognitive processing, such as attention, working memory, and decision making.
