I am working on the simulation of the dynamics and development of neural networks using Neuroinformatics and network analysis tools. Me and my team aim to understand the link between structure and dynamics (e.g. for epilepsy or other network diseases) and to find structural correlates of robustness and functional compensation.
We are part of the Neuroinformatics@Newcastle network, leading the Human Green Brain Project on modelling human brain development, and involved in the CANDO project on using optogenetics to prevent seizure activity in epilepsy patients.
