Power Law Discovery May Explain Why You Can See the Forest and the Trees Scientists find evidence for a surprising power law in the brain, which may help us see both smaller details and the big picture.
Predicting Neural Dynamics from Neural Connectivity By Emily Singer A new mathematical framework aims to decipher how the structure of a neural network shapes the activity patterns it creates.
Q&A: New Tracking Techniques Reveal Unexpected Social Behaviors Are two pups playing or fighting? The answer is not always clear, but new automated methods can characterize social interactions in a more quantifiable way than ever before.
Conference Spotlight: Cosyne 2019 Check out these talks and workshops featuring investigators from the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain.
Schooling Fish May Offer Insights Into Networked Neurons Iain Couzin is deciphering the rules that govern group behavior. The results might provide a fresh perspective on how networks of neurons work together.
Finding Neural Patterns in the Din By Emily Singer A new algorithm, called seqNMF, can detect sequences in neural data generated by 'internal behaviors,' such as an animal thinking or sleeping.
