I have recently been trying to understand some of the different kinds of dynamics which can emerge in neuronal networks. To this end, I’ve focused mainly on the insect olfactory system and the mammalian primary visual cortex. I’ve also been developing tools for detecting various types of structure within large data sets, focusing mainly on finding ‘biclusters’ within gene-expression and SNP data.
