About Armen Stepanyants

The research in my group is aimed at understanding the principles of synaptic connectivity in the cerebral cortex. Most of my research projects are linked by a common theme which can be summarized as: inferring synaptic connectivity through the quantitative analysis of neuron morphology. The topics of interest range from the theoretical and computational analyses of real and artificial neural networks and their memory storage capacity, to building cortical connectivity diagrams based on the experimental datasets of neurons reconstructed in 3D, to developing algorithms for automated tracing of neural circuits from light microscopy stacks of images.
