  • The project involves the transformation of spiking models into mean-field models of the cerebellum. These models will be parameterized to mimic a series of pathologies, such as ataxia, dystonia and others, whose cerebellar involvement is known. Finally, these models will be inserted into the Virtual Brain to test their functionality.
