Analysis of Structured Data and Big Data with Application to Neuroscience
MetadataShow full item record
Neuroscience research leads to a remarkable set of statistical challenges, many of them due to the complexity of the brain, its intricate structure and dynamical, non-linear, often non-stationary behavior. The challenge of modeling brain functions is magnified by the quantity and inhomogeneity of data produced by scientific studies. Here we show how to take advantage of advances in distributed and parallel computing to mitigate memory and processor constraints and develop models of neural components and neural dynamics. First we consider the problem of function estimation and selection in ...
