Research Goals and Topics

Our research work can be summarized by asking the following questions:

The fields of research we are involved in are strongly interdisciplinary, integrating concepts from different natural science fields, such as biology, chemistry, physics, biochemistry, and biophysics. In our studies, we apply modern methods from applied mathematics, signal processing, scientific computing (including high-performance computing such as Techila Grid), computer science, and software engineering.

1. Role of astrocytes in neuronal network dynamics in vitro

2. Emergence of network dynamics in in vitro cell cultures

We are also doing collaborative experimental multielectrode array studies to support our modeling work on network dynamics.

3. Method and algorithm development

We are also involved in the activities of INCF, INCF National Node of Finland, and OCNS.
