Increasing complexity: PhD alum Gautam Agarwal challenges the brain to understand how it works in the real world
In this Q&A, Gautam Agarwal, now a research scientist in the Sommer lab, discusses how he has explored the mind through synapses, theoretical neuroscience, video games, and dance.
The Sommer lab has developed a model that uses neuronal “spikes” and rhythmic activity to help explain how the brain performs complex computations, which has implications for machine learning.
By Gautam Agarwal Our brains have the remarkable ability to guide us through a complex world full of uncertainty. Researchers at the Redwood Center aim to identify theoretical principles that can help to understand how the brain functions. The Center brings together mathematicians, physicists, biologists, computer scientists, and engineers in a unique collaborative environment. Together, […]
