The objective of the new scientific domain (Computational modelling in neuroscience) is to recognise the particular interdisciplinary experience of some researchers at Paris Brain Institute. Up to now people using a computational neuroscience approach were included in the other domains and applied their expertise in their host team. This new domain will give them the opportunity to share their vision – complementary with the vision of the other domains – to the institute scientific and medical COPIL.
The major aims of the PIs in the new domain are:
– Mathematical and computational modelling of multi-scale brain mechanisms ranging from molecular/cellular processes, large-scale integrated structure and dynamics (eg, anatomo-functional interactions), to cognition and behavior.
– Development of data-mining methods including network science, signal/image processing, machine learning and AI, for data interpretation and analysis and for better diagnosis and prognosis in neurological and psychiatric diseases;
– Development of scientific software and engineering tools for neuroscience applications.
