CNS*2019 Interneuron diversity and function Workshop
Aims and topics
Inhibitory interneurons exhibit much more variability than excitatory neurons in terms of morphology, electrophysiology, and connectivity. Advanced experimental techniques, such as optogenetics, have allowed to better classify neuronal activity by neuron type providing new insight into cortical dynamics.
Early models of neuronal networks relied on the presence of a homogeneous inhibitory population, but these models cannot account for many novel experimental observations. Updated circuit models that include interneuron heterogeneity expose the potential roles of different interneuron types.
The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of recent developments in the field focusing on functional approaches to interneuron modeling.
