Organization Type: University
Research Area: Many-Body Physics in Brain Matter:  We explore connections between organizing principles in physics and principles underlying computation in assemblies of neurons.  Simple, biologically relevant, models of neuron networks can perform non-trivial computations based on the development of synchrony in the timing of action potentials.  E.g. in olfaction, emergent collective order pulls apart a particular odor from a background of odors.
