Actors of CONECT

Within the INT, many components of CONECT already exist, either carried by researchers in computational neurosciences or as themes strongly anchored in this field. A survey of the current situation reveals the existence of projects at different scales.

  • from the cellular to the network level
    • deciphering the biophysical principles underlying robustness of neuronal activity using quantitative genotype-to-phenotype mapping strategies and realistic neuronal model databases (Jean-Marc Goaillard and Fabien Tell).
    • dynamics and function of small and large-scale neural networks (Laurent Perrinet with Frédéric Chavane, David Hansel, Carl van Vreeswijk)
  • from networks to mesoscopic levels :
  • at brain level
    • brain anatomy, particularly as applied to the formation of cortical folding (Julien Lefèvre with Guillaume Auzias, Sylvain Takerkart and Olivier Coulon),
    • the development of prognostic models of the evolution of certain pathologies (Lionel Velly, Sylvain Takerkart),
    • develop the collaboration of theoretical neurosciences with neuroinformatics, notably with the NIT (Sylvain Takerkart, Guillaume Auzias)

A structuring of these different components through a center (independent of existing and future teams) would be a major asset to reach a new stage in the creation of INT³.
