Abstract
<p>Working together with the Blue Brain Project at the EPFL, I'm trying to develop new topological methods for neural modelling. As a mathematician, however, I'm really motivated by how these questions in neuroscience can inspire new mathematics. I will introduce new work that I am doing, together with Kathryn Hess and Ran Levi, on brain plasticity and learning processes, and discuss some of the topological and geometric features that are appearing in our investigations.</p>
