New postdoc at DANDRITE

Madeny Belkhiri started as postdoc in Duda Kvitsiani's group per 1 December 2015. Madeny will develop rule based decision making task in mice to examine how neural network dynamics in prefrontal circuits supports flexible representation of abstract categories by brain. Initially Madeny’s work will consist of building computational models of local circuit dynamics with the focus on understanding how different inhibitory interneurons control the flow of information in neural networks. Thus computational models constrained by experimental data will be used to gain fundamental insights into how prefrontal circuits can solve complex categorization tasks. These insights will help to understand functional role of cell-types in mammalian cortex.
