Here we describe an “information-based exchange” model of brain function that ascribes to neocortex, basal ganglia, and thalamus distinct network functions. The model allows us to analyze whole brain system set point measures, such as the rate and heterogeneity of transitions in striatum and neocortex, in the context of neuromodulation and other perturbations. Our closed-loop model is grounded in neuroanatomical observations, proposing a novel “Grand Loop” through neocortex, and invokes… 
Functional requirements of intentional control over the integrated cortico-thalamo-cortical and basal ganglia systems using neural computations
TLDR
A set of functional requirements used to evaluate the recently developed large-scale brain model against a learning task involving coordinated learning between cortical and sub-cortical systems are presented.
Dimensions of control for subthreshold oscillations and spontaneous firing in dopamine neurons
TLDR
Robust coordination by linear parameter controllers is shown, discovered through powerful mathematical analyses of data and models, and from which consistent control of DA subthreshold oscillations (STOs) and spontaneous firing emerges.
Computational characteristics and hardware implications of brain tissue simulations
TLDR
It is argued that performance analyses such as the authors' are required to enable the next generation of brain tissue simulations – or else scientific progress risks being hindered by the presence of severe hardware bottlenecks.
Evolutionary algorithm optimization of biological learning parameters in a biomimetic neuroprosthesis
TLDR
Major biological learning methods: spike-timing dependent plasticity and reinforcement learning can be used to efficiently tune the parameters of multiscale systems, linking realistic neuronal dynamics to behavior, and thus providing a useful tool for neuroscience and neuroprosthetics.
29th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting: CNS*2020
TLDR
Multi‐area spiking network models of macaque and human cortices and their implications for drug abuse are presented at NEST 2019.

TLDR
It is shown how inhibitory spike-timing-dependent plasticity (iSTDP) emerges and is closely related to that observed in models of recurrent excitatory networks and can generate a type of dynamics called “winnerless” in a subcortical brain structure called striatum, which also displays a loop-free topology.
Striatal Network Models of Huntington's Disease Dysfunction Phenotypes
TLDR
It is found that randomly initialized networks often show dynamics more resembling “winner-take-all,” and relate this “unhealthy” model activity to dysfunctional physiological and anatomical phenotypes in the striatum of Huntington's disease animal models.

Emerging concepts for the dynamical organization of resting-state activity in the brain
TLDR
Three large-scale neural system models of primate neocortex that emphasize the key contributions of local dynamics, signal transmission delays and noise to the emerging RSNs are reviewed.
A Theory of Loop Formation and Elimination by Spike Timing-Dependent Plasticity
TLDR
It is shown that the local spike timing-dependent plasticity rule has the effect of regulating the trans-synaptic weights of loops of any length within a simulated network of neurons, and predicted that STDP could also regulate long range functional loops among individual neurons across all brain scales.
Optimal Balance of the Striatal Medium Spiny Neuron Network
TLDR
The local MSN network has optimal characteristics – it is neither too stable to respond in a dynamically complex temporally extended way to cortical variations, nor is it too unstable to response in a consistent repeatable way.
Intrinsic functional architecture in the anaesthetized monkey brain
TLDR
This work demonstrates coherent spontaneous fluctuations within three well known systems (oculomotor, somatomotor and visual) and the ‘default’ system, a set of brain regions thought by some to support uniquely human capabilities.
A Generalized Linear Integrate-and-Fire Neural Model Produces Diverse Spiking Behaviors
TLDR
This study describes a generalization of the leaky integrate-and-fire model that produces a wide variety of spiking behaviors while still being analytically solvable between firings.
Integration of cortical and pallidal inputs in the basal ganglia-recipient thalamus of singing birds.
TLDR
A unifying biophysical model is presented that can reproduce all known modes of pallidothalamic transmission--rebound, gating, and entrainment--depending on the amount of excitation the thalamic neuron receives, and it is reported here that excitatory inputs affectThalamic spiking in two ways: by shortening the latency of a thAlamic spike after a pallidal spike and by increasing thalamate firing rates within individual pallidal ISIs.
Distinct coincidence detectors govern the corticostriatal spike timing‐dependent plasticity
TLDR
It is shown that the blockade of GABAergic transmission reversed the time dependence of corticostriatal STDP, and the receptors and signalling mechanisms involved in the STDP depended on distinct coincidence detectors, which means that LTP and LTD induced by STDP at corticOSTriatal synapses are mediated by independent signalling mechanisms.
Dysregulated information processing by medium spiny neurons in striatum of freely behaving mouse models of Huntington's disease.
TLDR
The results indicate an important role in both bursting and correlated burst firing for information processing in MSNs, which is a key component of HD pathophysiology regardless of the severity of HD symptoms, genetic construct, and background strain of the mouse models.
