Source reconstruction from extracellular potentials, from single cells to the whole brains

NIMH, Large Auditorium

Prof. Wójcik was trained as a theoretical physicist and finally specialized in the dynamical systems approach to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. Within these bounds he was recently studying the transport properties of disordered quantum multiplexer maps. He is also interested in classical extended systems exhibiting spatiotemporal chaos, such as Complex Ginzburg-Landau Equation. The general aim of prof. Wójcik´s research is the development of analysis tools and models to understand the dynamics in neural tissue during processing of sensory information. He is particularly interested in functioning of early levels of sensory systems, in particular thalamo-cortical loops, but he also studies the extrageniculate pathway of the visual system. For his projects see: www.3dbar.org or this movie of extracellular potential generated by the cortical column in a thalamo-cortical network.
