# Uncovering activity patterns, oscillations and other key dynamics of neuronal (and other) networks

**Description**:

The complexities of neural and other cellular networks currently cannot be elucidated by experiments alone. The detailed circuit electrophysiology at the cellular level, and at large-scale networks require contemporary mathematics and computation to uncover deep insights for how they function. This two-part mini-symposium brings together a broad group of researchers who will discuss their modeling approaches to understand neuro-based phenomena both theoretically and applied to various systems (sleep, sensory, reproductive, gut microbiome, etc.) driven by experimental data in healthy and/or pathological conditions. The researchers will focus on topics that range from analyzing circuit mechanisms of neuron spike dynamics and variability, network connectivity, neural oscillations and other spatiotemporal patterns of activity.
