In recent years, a growing number of computer scientists have tried to develop computational methods inspired by the structure, function and plasticity of neural circuits in the human brain. Achieving a comprehensive understanding of biological
Success is no accident: To reach your goal you need perseverance. But where does the motivation come from? An international team of researchers led by scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now
Tracking the firings of individual neurons is like trying to discern who is saying what in a football stadium full of screaming fans. Until recently, neuroscientists have had to tediously track each neuron by hand.
