Modelling the cerebellar information code in large-scale realistic circuits - Towards pharmacological predictions and robotic abstractions
To understand neural circuit computations a different approach is needed: elaborate realistic spiking neural networks of the rat cerebellum and use them, together with the theoretical basis of central network computation. This recognition is the goal of this project. The first goal is to extend the cerebellar models to simulate the ensemble network activity. The second is the implementation in robotic simulators and robots to achieve enhanced motor control capabilities.
