Theoretical Neurosciences Group (TNG)
The Theoretical Neuroscience Group aims at modelling the activity of the brain both in the normal and in the pathological case. For this purpose, we adopt a “multi-scale” approach. This means trying to understand the brain by binding in a single framework different resolution levels, and/or different time scales. This also means trying to unify different points of view, from
mathematical theory of complex systems toward computer-based numerical simulations (looking at the ensemble activity from the graph of elementary components) and behavioral studies.
One of the objectives of the group is to study and understand some neuronal disorders (in particular epilepsy) seen as “dynamical disorder” (as a disorganization of the normal dynamical system).
