Our group has two synergistic goals: To understand how brains work; this will advance treatment of neurological diseases. And to build computers that work like brains; this will increase computational power a million fold. To these two ends, we are building large-scale neural models to link cellular-level biophysical processes with the system-level functions that they enable (e.g., cognition), through an interdisciplinary effort that brings electronics and computer science in contact with neurobiology and medicine.
