Thesis title: Cortical spatiotemporal activity patterns

Supervisors: Pulin GONG , Peter ROBINSON

Thesis abstract:

Propagating neural waves have been widely observed almost in all parts of the cortex of a range of species. Given their widespread occurrence in the cortex, they potentially play significant functional roles in neural information processing. Recently, it has been suggested that propagating neural waves are the underlying neural substrates for the brain to carry out distributed dynamical computation; information might be encoded in these wave patterns, communicated based on their propagation, and processed when they collide or interact with each other. Despite their fundamental importance for understanding neural circuits, the dynamical properties and origin of propagating neural waves are poorly understood because they have very complex spatiotemporal dynamics. The overall aim of this project is to unravel the organizing principles of spatiotemporal activity in the cortex with different experimental data. New methods suitable for characterizing spatiotemporal patterns will be developed. The dynamics of the spatiotemporal patterns and their functions will be investigated.
