Computational Neuroscience


Welcome to the Computational Neuroscience division!




Our group is interested in the question of sensory coding:

How are sensory stimuli represented and processed in nervous systems?

Currently, we mainly work on this questions in two systems:

The tactile system of the leech and the vertebrate auditory system.
