One day workshop: Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Changes at molecular, cellular and network levels may lead to a variety of disorders involving pathological brain states. Examples range from schizophrenia and spreading depression to disorders with significant motor pathologies, such as Parkinson's disease and epilepsy. Computational modeling based on experimental data offers means to gain insight about the underlying mechanisms and generate novel predictions. In particular, this approach provides the opportunity to explore ideas and tease apart factors that are inaccessible in wet lab experiments and even allows for the simulation of therapeutic approaches, including closed-loop or individualized therapies.

In this workshop we will discuss how new insights at the molecular, cellular and network levels can be incorporated into computational modeling of pathological brain states. We aim to stimulate discussion that promotes advances in the use of computation in the development of pharmaceutical, surgical or electrical interventions.
