NEURONAL ACTIVITY AND MORPHOLOGY – SIMULATION WORK
We also focus on theoretical work and modeling in some of our projects. We investigate the connection between the neuronal tree structure and electrical activity by studying signal propagation and information coding along two basic morphological building blocks, i.e. axonal segments and axonal branching points. The aforementioned connection is investigated by solving numerically for the Hodgkin-Huxley model, as well as implementing other previously adapted models which serve as better representations of the mammalian nervous system.
