Spiking neuronal networks Cortical plasticity

Spiking neuronal networks

To make predictions or models of in vivo data, one need large-scale simulations of spiking neuronal network mimicking the emerging properties at the network level.

Cortical plasticity

Neurons are modifying the synapses between them as a function of their joint activities. Understanding the molecular processes and the computational consequences of such plasticity is crucial to unravel how the brain can adapt.
