A mesoscale connectome of the mouse brain

In Nature, researchers discuss how in mouse, an axonal connectivity map showing the wiring patterns across the entire brain has been created using an EGFP-expressing adeno-associated virus tracing technique, providing the first such whole-brain map for a vertebrate species.


Synaptic and nonsynaptic plasticity approximating probabilistic inference

In Frontiers in Synaptic Neuroscience, members of the INCF Sweden and UK Node propose a Hebbian learning rule for spiking neurons inspired by Bayesian statistics, in which synaptic weights and intrinsic currents are adapted on-line upon arrival of single spikes, which initiate a cascade of temporally interacting memory traces that locally estimate probabilities associated with relative neuronal activation levels.


Python-based geometry preparation and simulation visualization toolkits for STEPS

In Frontiers in Neuroinformatics, researchers at the Computational Neuroscience Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (Okinawa, Japan) introduce two new supporting toolkits that support geometry preparation and visualization for STEPS simulations.



INCF receives contributions from our member countries, based on gross domestic expenditures on research and development.

Karolinska Institutet and the Royal Institute of Technology are the host institutions of INCF. Further support is also received from the Swedish Research Council,
the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and the National Science Foundation.
