Research interests

Our primary research interests are the following:

  • Computational modeling of neural functions, including neurotransmission, information processing, plasticity, learning and memory in neural networks in vitro and in the brain
  • Modeling neuron-glia interactions in vitro and in vivo
  • Development of new mathematical tools for modeling
  • Neural disease mechanisms
  • Brain-inspired computations and technology (neuromorphic devices)

We are a multi-method computational and experimental neuroscience research group, with expertise in:

  • Integration of wet-lab data (e.g. electrophysiology, microscopy) into integrative analysis
  • Electrophysiology (patch-clamp, microelectrode arrays, local field potentials)
  • Computational and theoretical neuroscience
  • Application of mathematical theories in neuroscience
  • Signal processing and image analysis
  • High-performance computing
  • Neuromorphic engineering
  • Integration of machine learning methods with neuroscience
