Περίληψη: Dendrites are thin processes that extend from the cell body of neurons, the main computing units of the brain. The role of dendrites in complex brain functions has been investigated for several decades, yet their direct involvement in key behaviors such as for example sensory perception has only recently been established. In my presentation I will discuss how computational modelling has helped us illuminate dendritic function. I will present modelling studies from our lab –along with supporting experimental evidence- that investigate how dendrites influence information processing at the single cell level and their role in memory functions at the circuit level.
