Dr. Sacha van Albada is the new leader of the group "Theoretical Neuroanatomy"

The group Theoretical Neuroanatomy works on the collation and analysis of microscopic and macroscopic anatomical data, informing large-scale dynamical models of the mammalian brain at cellular and synaptic resolution that are simulated using supercomputers. Comparison of the model dynamics with experimentally measured activity further constrains the inferred connectivity.

Together with Rembrandt Bakker, Dr. Sacha van Albada studies the architecture and connectivity of brain circuits as the basis for neural network models at the resolution of neurons and synapses that relate structure to dynamics.
