Simulation Neuroscience
Cells & Circuits
Max Nolte is a PhD Student in the Cells & Circuits Section in the Simulation Neuroscience Division.

Max runs simulations of electrical activity on the reconstruction to learn more about computation in neocortical microcircuitry, especially the nature of variability. He collaborates with topologists to help understand how the complex architecture of the reconstructed microcircuitry shapes electrical activity in the network.

Max has a MPhys (Hons) in Computational Physics from the University of Edinburgh (2014).

Outside of work, Max whitewater kayaks, skis and hikes.
