Inferring the biophysical properties of a neuron from stimuli using a CNN
Currently my work is in helping to create a convolutional neural network that can effectively ascertain the various properties of a neuron based of the its response to stimuli. Over the summer, my work will be focused on improving our current CNN to take into account the “peeling procedure”, which is a domain-specific technique in neuroscience that can help improve the accuracy of our model, as well as generalise the model to account for various kinds of stimuli.
Message To SponsorI would like to thank the donors for their support. Having the opportunity to spend my summer engaging in research will not only help me prepare for a career as a research but develop my interest and understanding of the fields of computer science and neuroscience. I am grateful that I will have a chance to contribute to developments in neuroscience alongside my group, and am happy that I will be able to do something fulfilling over the summer.
