How neuroscience is benefiting from distributed computing, and how computing might learn from neuroscience.
Jeremy Freeman is a neuroscientist using computation to understand the brain. He obtained his BA from Swarthmore College in math, biology, and psychology. He completed a PhD in neural science at New York University, and is currently a Group Leader at HHMI’s Janelia Farm Research Campus. Freeman develops new approaches for analyzing, visualizing, and understanding large-scale patterns of neural activity. He hopes to reveal the deep principles according to which all brains function, including our own.
