Cortical Networks

The sheer number of neurons and their interconnections in the cortical network can be daunting. Updating the classical neural encoding approach with modern experimental and analytical techniques for studying neural populations, we ask what is the format of information carried by identified neural subpopulations within a cortical stage and across stages of the cortical hierarchy. In this way, we hope to build, piecewise, a detailed picture of the information transferred across the cortical network.
