Confronting mean-field theories to measurements a perspective from neuroscience

The aim of this two-days workshop is to analyze the successes and the failures of mean-field theories in accounting for measurements in neuroscience.  It is meant to bring together researchers in neuroscience, theoreticians and experimentalists, in order to bridge the experiment/theory gap :

- we hope that theoreticians will be attracted by the idea of extracting from their models predictions that experimentalists could test and, conversely
- we hope that experimentalists, by testing these predictions, will guide the theoreticians in the direction of developing better models.

  • Date : 14/01/2015 au 15/01/2015
  • Lieu : Paris
  • Organisateurs : Olivier Faugeras , Bruno Cessac

The workshop is organized so that it leaves large time slots for discussions. It will be organized in five different threads, each dealing with a specific topic. Within each thread two speakers, an experimentalist and a theoretician, will briefly present their work and views of the topic before emulating a debate between the workshop participants.
