"Mathematical Neuroscience" is the seventh seminar in the series Pathways to the 2023 IHP thematic project Random Processes in the Brain.
Title: Mathematical Neuroscience
Date: Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 10:00 GMT-3
Speaker: Olivier Faugeras
Affiliation: Inria Sophia Antipolis
Abstract: Why is it important to ground neuroscience in mathematics? What kind of mathematics are relevant in this scientific area where biology, perception; action and cognition are closely intermingled? What kind of relationships should be entertained with experimentalists and computationalists? In this lecture I will try to answer these questions through examples drawn from the analysis of the activity of large populations of neurons by mathematical methods from probability, statistics, and geometry.
