Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuits, Memory, and Computation 2016

March 18-19, 2016
501 Northwest Corner Building
Center for Neural Engineering and Computation
Columbia University, New York, NY 10027


The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in developing executable models of neural computation/processing of the brain of model organisms. Of interest are models of computation that consist of elementary units of processing using brain circuits and memory elements. Elementary units of computation/processing include population encoding/decoding circuits with biophysically-grounded neuron models, non-linear dendritic processors for motion detection/direction selectivity, spike processing and pattern recognition neural circuits, movement control and decision-making circuits, etc. Memory units include models of spatio-temporal memory circuits, circuit models for memory access and storage, etc. A major aim of the workshop is to explore the integration of various computational sensory and control models.

A Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon is being conducted in conjunction with the workshop.
