The aim of this thesis is to understand the dynamics of large interconnected populations of neurons. The method we use to reach this objective is a mixture of mesoscopic modeling and high performance computing. The rst allows us to reduce the complexity of the network and the second to perform large scale simulations. In the rst part of this thesis a new mean eld approach for conductance based neurons is used to study numerically the e ects of noise on extremely large ensembles of neurons. Also… CONTINUE READING
