What do cortical activity patterns tell us?

Workshop Cortical Activity Patterns, Friday, April 04, Utrecht.
The collective behavior of neuron populations displays very characteristic activity patterns. Do these patterns serve a particular purpose or do they simply reflect the network topology? Are they related to function, and why are they so different when we sleep or are anesthetized? The superficial electrical behavior of the brain has been measurable for ages, and the advances in brain imaging make them even more intriguing. Even at the coarse resolution of fMRI signals we find consistent macro-scale statistical corellation patterns. What are these patterns trying to tell us? In this workshop, five speakers will discuss these questions.

Neuroinformatics 2014 in Leiden

NeuroInformatics.NL is hosting the 2014 INCF Neuroinformatics Congress.
The venue will be the Kamerlingh Onnes Gebouw in Leiden, twenty minutes from Schiphol airport.

Role of Dutch researchers in the Human Brain Project

The recently launched European Human Brain Project (HBP) aims to have a full computer simulation of a functioning human brain ready in ten years. In the ramp-up phase, which covers a 30 month period, three Dutch groups are active. A considerable amount of funding for the HBP is available through open calls, and we are happy to announce that the HBP recently increased its footprint in The Netherlands by adding five members to the consortium (Leiden UMC, KNAW, Synaptologics BV, Univ. Maastricht, UvA).
