Description

Over the past decade, research at the interface of topology and neuroscience has grown remarkably fast. Topology has, for example, been successfully applied to objective classification of neuron morphologies, to automatic detection of network dynamics, to understanding the neural representation of natural auditory signals, and to demonstrating that the population activity of grid cells exhibits toroidal structure, as well as to describing brain structure and function and analyzing the relationship between them in a novel and effective manner. In this series of lectures, I’ll provide an overview of various promising recent applications of topology in neuroscience.
