Rich cell-type-specific network topology in neocortical microcircuitry

5 June 2017

Uncovering structural regularities and architectural topologies of cortical circuitry is vital for understanding neural computations.

In a paper published in Nature Neuroscience, the group of Idan Segev of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in collaboration with the Cells & Circuits team in the Simulation Neuroscience Division of the Blue Brain, and Tel Aviv University identified a rich cell-type-specific network topology in neocortical microcircuitry. The systematic approach presented in the paper has enabled interpretation of microconnectomics ‘big data’, and provided several experimentally testable predictions.
