Felix-Klein-Kolloquium: Vortrag fällt aus

Over the past decade, and particularly over the past five years, research at the interface of topology and neuroscience has grown remarkably fast. Topology has, for example, been successfully applied to objective classification of neuron morphologies and to automatic detection of network dynamics.

In this talk Prof. Hess Bellwald will focus on the algebraic topology of brain structure and function, describing results obtained by members of her lab in collaboration with the Blue Brain Project on digitally reconstructed microcircuits of neurons in the rat cortex. She will also describe our on-going work on the topology of synaptic plasticity.

The talk will include an overview of the Blue Brain Project and a brief introduction to the topological tools that are used.


Referentin: Prof. Dr. Kathryn Hess Bellwald, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
