Measuring and modelling brain states
March 28, 2020 – March 29, 2020
Update: This event has been cancelled due to travel restrictions affecting numerous speakers and other registrants.
The final workshop of the 3rd HBP Curriculum Workshops Series invites researchers interested in measuring and modelling brain states at multiple scales. At the cellular level, the appearance of different brain states (such as wake, sleep, anesthesia) are reviewed at the scale of neurons, from extracellular recordings in both human and animal models. From a modelling perspective, workshop participants will learn how cellular data can be used to build model networks of spiking neurons and how mean-field techniques are used to derive population models of different brain states from those network models. Together, these techniques can bridge scales, from neurons to the whole brain, and provide an integrated view of brain states and their responsiveness.
Participation is open to the entire student community and early career researchers, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the Human Brain Project or not. It is aimed to offer equal opportunities for all early career researchers regardless of gender, age, origin, etc.
