Statistical and biophysical modeling of binaural interaction in the lateral superior olive
The Lateral Superior Olive (LSO) is believed to be involved in encoding high frequency localization information based on interaural level difference (ILD) and interaural time difference (ITD) cues. Details of how this ...
A phase sensitivity based method for prediction of modes of behavior in quadrupedal locomotion
The objective of this study is development of prediction methods for characterizing the electrical behavior of ring type central pattern generators (CPGs). A mathematical model of the prototypical bursting neuron R15 from ...
Point-process modeling of excitatory/inhibitory interactions in LSO neurons
The thesis of this work is that the representation of sensory information in the discharges of single neurons can be characterized by point process models. The work focuses on the encoding of binaural information in the ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
Models of electrical activity, calcium concentration, and synaptic plasticity in Aplysia neurons
Mathematical models of two Aplysia neurons simulate salient features of the electrical and chemical activity of these neurons. First, the endogenous burster R15 was modeled as a Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) type membrane equivalent ...
A neural network approach to the redundant robot inverse kinematic problem in the presence of obstacles
Redundancy in robots is very much an open research area in the field of robotics. As the tasks required of robots become more and more complex, the ability of robots to perform satisfactorily in these applications must ...
