Contacts & Access Software Teaching Overview

 

The « Integrative & Computational Neuroscience (ICN) » is an interdisciplinary research department in neuroscience composed of six teams collectively engaged in a multi-scale study of the brain to identify computational principles and mechanisms in thalamocortical networks, and to understand the roles of intrinsic and evoked neuronal activity in the emergence of high-level brain functions.

The research at ICN (or ex UNIC) is supported by the CNRS, the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), Idex grants from Paris-Saclay (NeuroSaclay and I-Code), EC-grants from the Future Emerging Technology (FET) Directorate of the European Brain Community, and the « Human Brain Project » Flagship.
UNIC is also in charge of two international antennae, the French node of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facilities (INCF) (dir : Yves Frégnac and Andrew Davison) and the European Institute of Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN, dir : Alain Destexhe).

The different research teams at UNIC focus on three closely linked scientific issues :
- 1) characterizing the synaptic and cellular mechanisms engaged in the ongoing activation state and sensory evoked neural dynamics in cortical-like structures (during development and adulthood) ;
- 2) explaining/modeling the emergence of low-level perception correlates in primary sensory cortical areas ;
- 3) explaining/modeling the influence of lateral (intrinsic) and top-down (extrinsic) feedback connectivities.

  • Tribute to Karlheinz Meier
    Karlheinz was a dear friend, a unique person, a Man of Science that we will always remember, a man of integrity whom we will honor, a man of vision for his physicist and biologist colleagues. This letter was written on behalf of his friends at UNIC, and all the interdisciplinary PIs and students who participated in this incredible scientific journey under his guidance.
    Yves Frégnac Director of UNIC and Biology coordinator of FACETS and BrainScaleS.
