BRAIN: Memory, movement, cognition and perception arises from the collective
activity of neurons within cortical circuits and across large-scale
systems of the brain. While the causes of single neuron spikes have
been understood for decades, the processes that support collective
neural behavior in large-scale cortical systems are less clear and
have been at times the subject of contention. Modeling large-scale
brain activity with the tools of statistical physics is the topic of
my research.
