About this Research Topic
Abstracts submitted to the course can be found here.
This Topic aims to discuss current understanding of how the brain works, offering a platform to merge expertise from scientists working on cellular physiology, computational modeling and integrated brain signals using magnetic resonance imaging. Bringing together these communities, offering advanced teaching sessions on key topics will foster discussion on the origin of fMRI and discuss where bottom-up and top-down computational models can and need to meet to explain brain functions.
This special topic will build on the discussion and experience matured in the 2017 course of the International School of Brain cells and Circuits (Ettore Majorana foundation and centre for scientific culture, Erice, Italy), that will gather scientists from different disciplines to focus on the following subjects:
- Physiological bases of brain function
- Integrated brain functional signals
- Understanding emerging brain function
Keywords: Modeling and Simulation, Neurons, microcircuits, MRI imaging, Brain Dynamics
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
