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.
