Development of the Extracellular Action Potential Simulator (EAPSim)
The aim is to further develop the EAPSim tool. The work can be divided into two major parts (see below), suitable to be either covered by two separate theses or combined into one thesis, according to the student’s interest.
This work involves programming in Matlab and/or C, so previous experience or interest in those languages is desirable.
Part 1: Neural Network Based Approaches to Simulation of Target Neuron Activity in Extracellular Measurements in the CNS
In this part of the project, functional relationships between target neurons will be simulated. This allows for a more dynamic simulation environment than the one currently present.
Part 2: Spatial Influence on Spike Shapes and Three-Dimensional Transfer Functions
In this part of the project, the way in which spike shapes originating from a set of neurons with given shapes will be studied and parameterized. This gives access to a three-dimensional transfer function that is useful when modeling the simulation environment.
