How Do Neuronal Circuits Operate?

Referenten: Prof. Dr. Alexander Borst, Dr. Moritz Helmstädter | Moderation:Prof. Dr. Martin Wirsing

14.01.2016 um 18:15 Uhr

Brains are highly interconnected networks of millions to billions of neurons. How they work and how they process and store information − these questions are addressed differently by both speakers. Alexander Borst is interested in the processing of neuronal information at the level of individual neurons or small neuronal circuits. As an example he will present the structure of the neural circuit and its key elements responsible for performing the computations of photoreceptor signals in the visual system of the fly whereas Moritz Helmstädter develops and applies methods to map neuronal networks at a larger scale. In his talk, he gives insights into the new field of connectomics, the measurement of communication maps of neuronal circuits.

Alexander Borst ist Direktor am MPI für Neurobiologie in Martinsried.
Moritz Helmstädter ist Direktor am MPI für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main.
