The Computational Neurophysics Lab
What is computational neuroscience?

With the vast advancement of empirical techniques for recording, imaging and manipulating neural responses, the quantitative aspect of brain research is becoming increasingly more important. Theoretical physics offers a wide range of theoretical tools and concepts that were successfully applied in other fields of natural sciences.

In my lab we apply tools and concepts from: Statistical Mechanics, Nonlinear Dynamics, Theory of Disordered Systems and Information Theory to the investigation of the central nervous system. Specifically my lab focuses on two central challenges: the neural code and neural learning theory.
Address: Department of Physiology and Cell Biology, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, P.O.B. 653, Be'er-Sheva 84105, ISRAEL.
