Unraveling the dynamics of the brain through modeling and analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this short note I share with the mathematics community some of my modeling experience in visual neuroscience. Proposing to view the brain as a large and complex dynamical system, I suggest a mathematical framework, and discuss some open problems on the dynamics of neuronal interactions that I believe are highly relevant to Computational Neuroscience.
