computational neuroscience


ANNarchy (Artificial Neural Networks architect) is a general-purpose parallel neuro-simulator for rate-coded or spiking neural networks.

Basal Ganglia

The Basal Ganglia (BG) are the main nuclei involved in reinforcement learning processes in the brain and allow a variety of cognitive functions such as working memory, decision making and action selection.

Dopaminergic system

Modeling the dopaminergic system (VTA, SNc), its afferent system and its influence on the basal ganglia, prefrontal cortex and hippocampus.

Predictive Place-Cell Sequences for Goal-Finding Emerge from Goal Memory and the Cognitive Map: A Computational Model

Hippocampal place-cell sequences observed during awake immobility often represent previous experience, suggesting a role in memory processes. However, recent reports of goals being overrepresented in sequential activity suggest a role in short-term …
