The functions of the nervous system are emerging properties of complex networks combining millions of neurons; the knowledge of the behavior of individual neurons cannot suffice to understand these emerging properties; it is therefore necessary to access the collective behaviors of neuron assemblies to understand their function.
The goal of this meeting is, according to the aims of the GDR NeuralNet, and in the framework of the Labex Memolife, to bring together neuroscientists from various horizons but involved inunderstanding the dynamics of neuronal networks.
The program is aiming at presenting cutting-edge developments and discoveries in three fields of the study of the dynamics of neural networks:
- methodologies (novel technology, instrumentation and data management/analysis)
- functional analysis of biological networks
- computational neuroscience.
