Join us for this workshop on "Energy and entropy measures in neural systems", on May 5th and 6th 2021 in the afternoon (CET).
"Energy and entropy concepts to characterize and understand brain activity"
Organizers: Alain Destexhe, Jennifer Goldman, Mavi Sanchez-Vives, Pier Stanislao Paolucci, Chiara DeLuca, Cristiano Capone, Trang-Anh Nghiem
Abstract: Brain circuits in vivo or in vitro display a wide variety of activity states, and they may also respond to external inputs differently in each state. The goal of this workshop is to evaluate and compare tools to understand both the activity state, and its responsiveness, based on energy and entropy concepts commonly used in physics. We will review different ways of defining relevant measures of energy and entropy, and how they apply to analyze brain activity, including brain states and cognitive tasks, and what useful information can be extracted to better understand the system. We will also evaluate the opportunity of writing a collaborative paper that reviews the different techniques and their usefulness.
