Neural Coding and Brain Computing Unit
Cognitive functions of the brain, such as sensory perception, learning and memory, and decision-making emerge from computations by neural networks. The advantages of biological neural computation in comparison with machine computation reside in the way that the brain’s neural circuits implement computation. To uncover neural code and circuit mechanisms of brain computing, the unit takes computational and theoretical approaches. The goal is to construct a minimal yet effective description of powerful and flexible computation implemented by the brain’s neural circuits.
