Romain Brasselet

I am a mathematical neuroscientist. The focus of my work is two-fold. On one side, I am interested in spatio-temporal neural coding, or how populations of neurons manage to encode temporally-resolved signals. More precisely, I try to understand how the mathematical relations betweens neural signals can map relations between external stimulations, and how these relations are altered or preserved as the signals are hierarchically processed. On the other side, cognition, and in particular categorization, has more recently piqued my interest. I try to build models that account for human categorization and the quirks associated to it.
On a technical side, I make an extensive use of information theory and machine learning techniques. I give lectures on these topics as well as on statistical inference.
