Frankfurt Computational Modelling Block course

Models for Neural Circuit Development

We will discuss the principles guiding the formation of sensory maps and receptive fields during circuit development. The students will examine how different mechanisms including: emergence of diverse single neuron properties and activity-dependent synaptic plasticity interact during development to give rise to functional circuits. The students will have the opportunity to analyze data from visual cortex and build their own models of the assembly and tuning of developing neuronal circuits.
