Moritz Helias in the labs of Nicolas Brunel and Carl van Vreeswijk, Paris, France

Moritz Helias in the labs of Nicolas Brunel and Carl van Vreeswijk, Paris, France

 

In December 2008 I had the nice opportunity to visit Nicolas Brunel and Carl van Vreeswijk at the Universite Rene Descartes in Paris. Giving a talk about structural plasticity in their joint lab seminar I got valueable feedback on my work from both of them. I also enjoyed discussing with them my more recent results on the leaky integrate-and-fire model, that gave me new insights and inspiration.

 

During the seminar I was very happy to meet Michael Graupner and also Anton Chizhov, who made me awear of self-similar solutions of diffusion problems, a technique which was very useful for me to learn about. The following day I was invited to join the 6th Computational Neuroscience Day with the topic 'correlations in neural networks',
held at the Institute des Systemes Complexes. It was attended by many scientists working in Paris in the field of computational neuroscience, among them Vincent Hakim, whom I could finally talk to about his pioneering work on dynamics recurrent networks.

After the meeting I joined a small group of postdocs and PhD students to explore the quartier latin.
