Dendritic contributions to complex functions: insights from computational modeling
Yiota Poirazi, Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas, present a talk how to use computational modelling approaches to investigate the role of dendrites in learning and memory processes.
In this talk computational modelling approaches are used to investigate the role of dendrites in learning and memory processes. The models range in complexity from detailed biophysical single cells, to reduced microcircuits and large scale simplified neuronal networks. Brain areas of interest include the hippocampus, the amygdala, the prefrontal cortex and the visual cortex.
