Normative neurophysiology


  • Prof Mate Lengyel

    University of Cambridge

Project summary

Dr Lengyel aims to investigate the connections between the biophysical properties of neurons and cognition. He will identify conditions for the optimal operation of neural circuits, and investigate how their various biophysical properties contribute to such near-optimal functioning. These questions will be addressed using cutting-edge theoretical techniques from computational neuroscience, information theory, signal processing and machine learning.
