Title: Testing the stability of the critical network state in cerebral cortex


GroƟhaderner Str. 2
82152 Martinsried

Host: Harald Luksch

Accumulating evidence supports the hypothesis that parts of cerebral cortex operate near dynamic criticality. This raises questions as to the stability of the network state when the neural circuits are being perturbed. I will present experiments designed to address this stability question in the context of (i) visual deprivation acting as a homeostatic challenge, (ii) neural reorganization during motor learning, and (iii) adaptation to sensory inputs.
