Advanced Lecture (U. of Cambridge): Analysis of electrodiffusion in dendritic spines for synaptic transmission

Presented by: 
David Holcman CNRS - Ecole Normale Superieure Paris
Friday 24th June 2016 - 11:45 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
This lecture presents recent methods to study electro-diffusion and the Poisson-Nernst-Planck equation (PNP) in bounded domains. The methods are used to interpret and deconvolve  voltage dye (Arclight) signal from dendritic spine and to extract the I-V relation. The geometry of the spine plays a crucial roles in defining this relation.
