Dr. James Watrous – Conference Speaker at International Conference on high performance computing, networking, storage & analysis

Seattle, Washington  Nov 12-18.

Dr. Watrous was invited to give a major presentation to computer science, biology and chemistry faculty on the use of SNNAP as a modeling tool for neuroscience research and education.

Examples presented included details of single neurons, how to connect them with chemical synapses and how to construct more complex networks.

The talk ended with a brief introduction to two areas of research: networks that simulate epilepsy and the neurons that control circadian (~24 hr) rhythms.
