The Whole Worm: Brain-Body-Environment Models of C. elegans
Eduardo Izquierdo, PhD (Indiana University)
The Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience Research Group (CTNRG) brings together theoretical and experimental researchers from across Duke who are interested in understanding and developing formal mathematical models to describe the brain's processing of information. The aims of the group are to increase the community's understanding of computational and theoretical approaches to studying the brain, to share ongoing research, and to foster collaborations, especially between theorists and experimentalists. The group meets Thursdays from 10:30 am - 11:30 am in Bryan Research 301 and on Zoom, alternating between presentations of ongoing work from both local and external speakers and journal club discussions of recent published work in the field. The group is funded and administered by the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, and is open to anyone who is interested in attending.
