The human nervous system and its functioning have always been the focus of attention for many scientists for centuries and they were studied from many different points of view. This research project bridges neuroscience, neurocomputing and bioengineering and aims to explore the brain neural mechanisms with two approaches: modeling and experimental. Since the entire nervous system is too complex and wide to be studied as a whole, the research is focused on the cerebellum and its known crucial learning plasticity skills. The proposal has a strong multi-scale approach, from detailed neuron properties to motor behavior, connecting realistic modeling and human experimental data, with the perspective of useful clinical-rehabilitative applications.

Abstract

The human nervous system and its functioning have always been the focus of attention for many scientists for centuries and they were studied from many different points of view. This research project bridges neuroscience, neurocomputing and bioengineering and aims to explore the brain neural mechanisms with two approaches: modeling and experimental. Since the entire nervous system is too complex and wide to be studied as a whole, the research is focused on the cerebellum and its known crucial learning plasticity skills. The proposal has a strong multi-scale approach, from detailed neuron properties to motor behavior, connecting realistic modeling and human experimental data, with the perspective of useful clinical-rehabilitative applications.
