Complexity and flexibility of brain functions could be attributed to a huge variety of dynamical behavior of constituents of a neural system, neurons and synapses. My research goal is to understand how the dynamical properties of the constituents play functional roles in neural information processing. To this end, I investigate dynamical behaviors from at a cellular level to at a network level, interaction between the constituents, and relationship between the characteristics and brain functions using computational models of neurons and synapses.
