Lecture Series presented by KPMG - Sense from Chaos: Controlling the Dynamic Networks of the Brain
Speaker(s): Larry Abbott
Abstract: Activity recorded from neurons in the brain often looks random or chaotic. How do we make sense of the world and produce precisely controlled responses when so much of the activity in our brains is chaotic? This talk will show how brain circuits can switch between chaotic and well-controlled pattern... read more

The Dynamics of Neural Networks
Speaker(s): Larry Abbott
Abstract: Neural circuits exhibit complex patterns of spontaneous activity. I will discuss how neural network models can reproduce this activity and how it interacts with responses evoked by sensory stimuli. This work involves analytic, mean-field and computer analyses of large systems of nonlinear differenti... read more
