Research Interests

My current research interests are centered around cell assemblies, working memory and neural intergation. Traditionally, the problem of working memory or, in other words, remembering the information after the stimulus removal, was solved using attractor-based networks. Such networks, however, suffer from a severe fine-tuning problems and do not exhibit the variability found in neuronal populations. On top, there is a growing body of research showing sequential rather than recurrent activation of neurons. Currently I am investigating the properties of an alternative framework called functionally feedforward networks. In future I hope to employ these FF networks to model hippocampal cell assemblies.
