Abstract:

In this talk I will present what we have learned about the structural and functional principles of the microconnectome of the neocortical microcircuitry. Three mathematical views will be presented; based on graph theory, information theory and algebraic topology. Changes in the organization of the microconnectome with synaptic and circuit plasticity, and implications for learning and memory will be discussed.
