PRINCIPLES OF INFORMATION PROCESSING IN NEURONAL AVALANCHES
How the brain processes information is poorly understood. It has been suggested that the imbalance of excitation and inhibition (E/I) can significantly affect information processing in the brain. Neuronal avalanches, a ...
Conformational Sampling and Calculation of Molecular Free Energy Using Superposition Approximations
The superposition approximations (SAs), first proposed in the distribution function theories of liquids, are a family of approximations to a multivariate probability distribution function (pdf) in terms of its lower order ...
Jamming effects in glasses and biopolymers
In this dissertation, jamming effects in highly packed systems are studied in two specific materials: glasses and biopolymers in cellular environments. Suspensions consisting of highly charged colloids, which are well-known ...
