Modeling brain dynamics and connectivity using neural fields: Theory, experiment and prospects

In his dynamic and engaging style, Peter Robinson (who is CIBF’s theme leader, Modelling and Technologies) will talk about how researchers in his lab are using neural fields to model brain dynamics and connectivity.

Peter received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Sydney in 1987, then held a postdoc at the University of Colorado at Boulder until 1990. He then returned to Australia, joining the permanent staff of the School of Physics at the University of Sydney in 1993, obtaining a chair in 2000, and subsequently holding two Australian Research Council Federation Fellowships before his present Laureate Fellowship. His current work is mainly on brain dynamics, networks, complex systems, field theory, propagators, critical phenomena, imaging, and waves.

He is based at the University of Sydney.
