The European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN)

The European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN) was created on March 2014 as part of the Theoretical Neuroscience activities of the Human Brain Project (HBP) and is operated by the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI), unit of the CNRS.
The EITN has for scientific director Alain Destexhe (Neuro-PSI, CNRS, Gif-sur-Yvette).

16/02/2021 - Save the date! Online workshop "Multisite recordings and distributed representations in the macaque brain"

Our online workshop on "Multisite recordings and distributed representations in the macaque brain" will take place on March 10th, 2021.

Organized by Alain Destexhe, Frédéric Chavane, and Viktor Jirsa.

Multisite recordings have progressed tremendously in the last years, following the availability of new recording techniques, microelectrode arrays, high-density microprobes, new dyes for imaging, etc. Such techniques provide invaluable data on the “mesoscale”, spanning typically over one or two brain areas. In parallel, progress have been made in the computational description of mesoscale activity using population models, going from brain regions up to the whole brain. The goal of this workshop is to put together experimentalists and theoreticians working at the mesoscale level of large networks in the macaque brain, and evaluate which new tools (such as TVB or EBRAINS) would be needed to facilitate this interaction.

Registration info and preliminary program.

26/01/2021 - Save the date! Online workshop "Whole-brain simulations of the monkey brain"

Our online workshop on "Whole-brain simulations of the monkey brain" will take place on February 4th.

Organized by Alain Destexhe, Frédéric Chavane, and Viktor Jirsa.

In this workshop, we would like to discuss the modeling of large-scale activity in the macaque brain, in particular using population models. In a first part, we will discuss the mesoscale (millimeters), were phenomena like propagating waves were recorded in high resolution and modeled at the level of an entire brain area in visual cortex. In a second part, we would like to discuss this approach to model large-scale brain-wide phenomena, using tools such as The Virtual Brain and EBRAINS.

Attendance is free, but registration is mandatory. Click here for more info and link to registration.
