Spikes — communication in the brain: Dr. Eugene M. Izhikevich

December 3, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Most communication in the brain is via spikes. While we understand the spike-generation mechanism of individual neurons, we fail to appreciate the spike-timing code and its role in neural computations.

The speaker starts with simple models of neuronal spiking and bursting, describes small neuronal circuits that learn spike-timing code via spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP), and finishes with large-scale brain models.
