 Research Background

Computational Neuroscience is a study based on the assumption that the brain is a biological computer. To truly understand a computer (brain), we need to understand the functions of its logic gates (neurons) and their wiring (neuronal circuits) that yields higher level functions, in a bottom-up manner. Historically, computational neuroscience has striven to suggest mathematical models of the neural computations based on biological and physiological experiments and thus to produce theoretical foundations for understanding the brain functions—firstly for individual neurons and then for neuronal circuits. Connectomics inherits and realizes these ideas by considering the ultrastructural connection specificity and the complete population of neurons in circuits—firstly for small samples or regions of the brain and ultimately for the entire brain. In our lab we observe the 3D structure of neurons and their connectivity from high-resolution images obtained by serial electron and light microscopes. We use deep learning artificial intelligence and other computational techniques to analyze the images. We mathematically model the functions of neural networks from the activity of neurons in the circuit.
