About me :

My name is Amélie Aussel and I am currently a 2nd year PhD student at the LORIA and the CRAN in the University of Lorraine, France. I am also involved in teaching activities at the Ecole des Mines and the UFR Math-Info in Nancy.

My current research project aims at better understanding the hippocampus, a small region of the brain which is involved in many cognitive processes such as memory or spatial navigation.
In order to do so, I have built a computational model of the hippocampal formation to simulate its activity in various situations.
After having studied the healthy hippocampus, I am now trying to modify my model and investigate the different factors that can lead to epileptic activity.

Here is a short video explaining the first part of my work :
