Organized by Jennifer S. Goldman (French National Center for Scientific Research), Trang-Anh E. Nghiem (École normale supérieure de Paris), Alain Destexhe (French National Center for Scientific Research) and Wolf Singer (Ernst Strüngmann Institute, Max Planck Society) with the support of the Paris IAS.

Presentation

In this workshop we address mechanisms by which brains encode information.

We will discuss how neurons - leaky, stochastic channels - interact nonlinearly to entrain synchrony and resonance phenomena thereby reducing dimensionality in dynamics of the cell assemblies coding particular representations. From unconscious to conscious brain states, spontaneous neural signals increase in dimensionality. Since neural codes likely lie on low dimensional manifolds, we explore collapses in dimensionality within encoding networks as mechanisms supporting neural information specifically in conscious states.

We aim to bring together researchers in neuroscience, mathematics, physics, and computer science to explore substrates promoting self-organization of neural dynamics, toward a robust understanding of neural codes important for reverse engineering next generation biomimetic computing architectures.
