Synaptic plasticity models in brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders

Abstract:

Mathematical and computational models are powerful tools that can help us gain a deeper understanding about the world around us. In Neuroscience, however, there is still debate as to what the role of models is in research. In this thesis we build models of synaptic plasticity of varying degrees of complexity, and at different levels of abstraction in order to generate experimentally testable hypotheses and propose new ways of thinking about synaptic plasticity in development and in neurode...
