Dendritic contributions to complex functions: insights from computational modeling
My lab (www.dendrites.gr) uses computational modelling approaches to investigate the role of dendrites in learning and memory processes. Our 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.
