Professor Idan Segev, Israel

Professor Idan Segev is the David & Inez Myers Professor in Computational Neuroscience and the Director of the Department of Neurobiology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research team utilizes computational and theoretical tools to study how neurons compute and dynamically adapt to their environment. In recent years, his group has worked as part of the Human Brain Project in collaboration to model a whole piece of the mammalian cortex with the ultimate goal of unraveling how local fine variations within the cortical network underlie specific behavioral function and may give rise to certain brain diseases or to healthy and “individual” brains.
