Broad 100
Sense from Randomness in Neural Circuits
Larry Abbott, William Bloor Professor of Theoretical Neuroscience, Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Columbia University,

Many neural circuits are interconnected with remarkable precision, but others appear to be wired randomly.  How extensive is randomness and how can randomly connected circuits perform useful functions?  I will address these questions using experimental data and models from a number of different systems.

Refreshments will be served at 3:45 pm outside the Broad 100.
