Neuronal networks and functional connectivity

Patricia Reynaud-Bouret , CNRS/University of Nice, France - 11:15

After giving a short introduction to biological neuronal networks and their
main properties, I will explain why neurobiologists are interested by
functional connectivity, which form a mathematical point of view can be
seen as a local independence graph between neurons or brain areas. In
particular, they think this might be a part of the neural code. I will show
how one can infer this graph and obtain mathematical guarantee on it and
this even if we observe only a very small subpart of a potentially infinite
set of neurons.
