[Comp-neuro] New Purkinje Neuron Paper

This very recent paper may be of interest to the readership. 
It investigates and demonstrates the computational power of just a single neuron: the cerebellar Purkinje neuron. Furthermore, it suggests that the sodium-potassium pump is not simply a homeostatic, "housekeeping" molecule - but that it can be a computational element, utilised by the brain for information processing.

Subject: [Comp-neuro] A mailing list for Computational Glioscience

Dear colleagues,
A spinoff of the recent OCNS workshop on the modelling of glia-neuron interactions, we have started a new mailing list. It is intended to share items of interest (new results, papers, events, trainings, jobs...) to the computational glioscience community, i.e. researchers implicated in the modelling and simulation of glial cells at large (astrocytes, microglia, oligodendrocytes, Schwann cells...) and their interactions with neurons.
To subscribe, send an email to : sympa at inria.fr with the following Subject:

Sincerely yours
Maurizio De Pitta'
