MidsummerBrains: Physics and computational neuroscience

Computational neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field ranging from mathematics, physics and engineering to biology, medicine and psychology.

Interdisciplinary collaborations have resulted in many groundbreaking innovations both in the research and application.

The basis for successful collaborations is the ability to communicate across disciplines: What projects are the others working on? Which techniques and methods are they using? How is data collected, used and stored?

In the MidsummerBrains colloquium, experts from the SMARTSTART faculty describe their view on computational neuroscience in theory and application, and share experiences they had with interdisciplinary projects.

This is a recording of the lecture "My View on Computational Neuroscience", held by Tatjana Tchumatchenko, head of the theory of neural dynamics group at the MPI for Brain Research in Frankfurt (

She talked about her point of view on computational neuroscience as a physicist and the winded path from experiment to insight and publication.
