Introducing NeuroJet

An initial goal of this project is proof of concept. This requires successful simulations of cognitive and behavioral paradigms via a biologically based, but still simplified, model of a specific brain region.

The hippocampal formation is a particularly attractive starting point because of its key role in episodic learning, because of the breadth of methodologies applied to hippocampal function, and because of the detailed quantitative data in the experimental literature.
