Detection of sources of simultaneous firing in spiking neuronal network

Thursday, April 23th, 2009

Library, first floor
BCCN Building
Hansastr. 9a
Recent experimental studies revealed that neural networks can generate spiking patterns with high degree of temporal coherence between firing events of different cells (pairwise synchronization, clustering, synfire patterns, cortical songs etc.) We analyze experimental fMCI recordings and numerical simulation data to detect synchronization sources and to obtain information about topological characteristics of the synaptic connections activated to generate the observed patterns.
The talk is open to the public. Guests are cordially invited!
