Synchronization and Modulation in Networks of Neurons

Sunday, January 18, 1998 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
Keller 3-180
Nancy Kopell (Boston University)
This talk is a survery of some mechanisms by which a network of neurons can synchronize, and ways in which the synchronization process can be modulated. The examples are taken from a variety of neural preparations. The talk includes a discussion of the role of in the synchronization process of the wave form of the voltage, the time scales in the synaptic processes, and timing of spikes within a burst. It will serve as an introduction to more detailed talks to be given in the later sessions.
