the structure and function of biological neural networks
Nervous systems are comprised of structurally and functionally connected neural elements. These elements form vast networks that help shape brain function and cognitive processes. In our lab we use methods from network science to study the organization and behavior of biological neural networks so that we can better understand their role in health and disease.
Our work involves analysis of network data at different spatial, temporal, and topological scales. Our goal is to understand the underlying principles that shape the organization and function of biological neural networks.
