A computational perspective of the role of Thalamus in cognition

Thalamus has traditionally been considered as only a relay source of cortical inputs, with hierarchically organized cortical circuits serially transforming thalamic signals to cognitively-relevant...

Causal Unit of Rotors 

The relationship between the downward causation and scale is nonlinear. We describe rotors in multiple spatiotemporal scales by generating a renormalization group from a numerical model of cardiac excitation, and evaluate the causal...

Design of the Artificial: lessons from the biological roots of general intelligence

Our desire and fascination with intelligent machines dates back to the antiquity's mythical automaton Talos, Aristotle's mode of mechanical thought (syllogism) and Heron of...

Theoretical principles of multiscale spatiotemporal control of neuronal networks: a complex systems perspective​

Success in the fine control of the nervous system depends on a deeper understanding of how neural circuits control behavior. There is, however, a wide...

Local field potentials primarily reflect inhibitory neuron activity in human and monkey cortex

The local field potential (LFP) is generated by large populations of neurons, but unitary contribution of spiking neurons to LFP is not well characterised. We...
