Senior Thesis Topic in Neurophysics

  1. Mar 29, 2015 #1
    Can anyone suggest any interesting problems relating a neuron model with nonlinear phenomena (or nonlinearity of the neurons itself)? And also which spiking neuron model is computationally simple yet able to produce firing patterns close to a real biological neuron?

    That's great... It sounds like your last nerve... Nonlinear though? Defining the term is obviously going to present a starting line, or, what do you mean by nonlinear. Are you referring to cause and effect? Meaning it should do A but it does B, C & D; or are you interested in mapping?

    I don't mean to be a pest, I just thought that deciding on the order of magnitude regarding the term nonlinear might yield some direction or possibly an idea.

    I am having trouble with the word dimension; lately. It seems that currently, in scientific fields, one is only allowed to refer to a variable/constant in a mathematical equation as a dimension; and that rules space, not the axes of course, but space itself, out as a dimension. Not the undefined or time though as they are used regularly in this manner but as dimensions the order of magnitude seems??? narrow. Any suggestions?
