How do neurons coordinate in complex networks to achieve higher brain functions? Answering this question has relied on experimental approaches based on functional imaging, electrophysiology and microscopy imaging, but surprisingly, what is now really missing in order to make sense of large data are analytical methods, multiscale modeling, simulations and mathematical analysis. Studying neuronal responses while accounting for the underlying geometrical organization, the details of synaptic…

Dynamical Systems in Neuroscience: The Geometry of Excitability and Bursting
TLDR
This book explains the relationship of electrophysiology, nonlinear dynamics, and the computational properties of neurons, with each concept presented in terms of both neuroscience and mathematics and illustrated using geometrical intuition, providing a link between the two disciplines.
Neuronal Networks of the Hippocampus
Neural Networks with Dynamic Synapses
TLDR
A unified phenomenological model is proposed that allows computation of the postsynaptic current generated by both types of synapses when driven by an arbitrary pattern of action potential activity in a presynaptic population and allows for derivation of mean-field equations, which govern the activity of large, interconnected networks.
Attractor dynamics of network UP states in the neocortex
TLDR
It is concluded that network UP states are circuit attractors—emergent features of feedback neural networks that could implement memory states or solutions to computational problems.
Modeling the Spontaneous Activity of the Auditory Cortex
TLDR
Changes in the synaptic weight function in the model, which affects excitatory synapses organization and reproduces the changes in cortical map connectivity can be understood as the main mechanism to explain the transitions of the EEG from the normal to the epileptic regime in the auditory cortex.
The Emergence of Up and Down States in Cortical Networks
TLDR
It is proposed that the existence of Up–Down states is a fundamental and inherent property of a noisy neural ensemble with sufficiently strong synaptic connections.
Differential signaling via the same axon of neocortical pyramidal neurons.
TLDR
Differential signaling is a key mechanism in neocortical information processing, which can be regulated by selective synaptic modifications, andeterogeneity of synaptic transfer functions allows multiple synaptic representations of the same presynaptic action potential train and suggests that these synaptic representations are regulated in a complex manner.
Turning on and off recurrent balanced cortical activity
TLDR
It is shown that local cortical circuits do indeed operate through a proportional balance of excitation and inhibition generated through local recurrent connections, and that the operation of such circuits can generate self-sustaining activity that can be turned on and off by synaptic inputs.
A mathematical theory of the functional dynamics of cortical and thalamic nervous tissue
TLDR
It is shown that this particular mode reproduces some of the phenomenology of visual psychophysics, including spatial modulation transfer function determinations, certain metacontrast effects, and the spatial hysteresis phenomenon found in stereopsis.
