HBP Tea & Slides
Present your research and make yourself visible to other (early-career) researchers within and outside the HBP!

The HBP Student Representatives & Ambassadors, supported by the HBP Education Programme, invite you to a virtual coffee/tea break featuring talks by young researchers.
Summer break :)
More information on the next HBP Tea & Slides session, scheduled in September will follow soon.
Registration is free and open to everyone.
The fifth Tea & Slides session featured talks about "Quality of Life in NEURON: My expressive multiscale Python tools" introduced by Robin De Schepper (University of Pavia) and “Cellular-resolution two-photon microscopy uncovers the spatio-temporal organization of the cerebellar granular layer activity” presented by Marialuisa Tognolina (University of Pavia).
The recorded session will be uploaded soon.
This time, Petruț Bogdan (The University of Manchester, HBP WP 6) presented "SpiNNaker: A Spiking Neural Network" and Jennifer Goldman (European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience, CNRS; HBP WP 2) talked about "A scale-integrated approach to understanding brain states; from single neuron biophysics to macroscopic neural dynamics" Talk 2 was not recorded because of unpublished material.
This session featured talks about “Techniques for the visualization and improvement of brain structure descriptions” presented by Juan José García Cantero (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain) and “Goal driven neural network models of biological movement control” introduced by Hari Teja Kalidindi (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy).
This time, Miriam Menzel (Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine, Forschungszentrum Jülich) presented “Light Scattering Measurements Enable an Improved Reconstruction of Nerve Fiber Crossings” and Sandra Diaz (Institute for Advanced Simulation, Forschungszentrum Jülich) talked about structural plasticity in spiking neural networks and the implementation of a model to study this phenomenon using the NEST simulator.
The first HBP Tea & Slides Session consisted of talks by Alice Geminiani (University of Pavia) and Jens E. Pedersen (KTH Stockholm). Alice introduced the world of the cerebellum, showing how data-driven models of the cerebellar circuit can elucidate the neural bases of motor learning and explain disease mechanisms. Jens presented how we can exploit the growing knowledge within both neuroscience and computer science to train brain-inspired control systems on neuromorphic hardware. The talks were followed by short Q&A sessions with participants.
