Ari Pakman – Fast Penalized State-space Methods for Inferring Dendritic Synaptic Connectivity, 05/01/2012

Speaker: Ari Pakman (Columbia University) Title: Fast Penalized State-space Methods for Inferring Dendritic Synaptic Connectivity When: Tuesday, May 1, 2012 Time: 11:30 am Where: Simons Center, Lecture Hall 102 Abstract: We present fast methods for filtering voltage measurements and performing optimal inference of the location and strength of synaptic connections in large dendritic trees. Given noisy, subsampled […]
