Brain function depends on interactions across multiple temporal and spatial scales from molecules and synapses up to interconnected brain areas.
Mechanistic multiscale modeling provides the means to organize and understand the cross-scale interactions to explain how brains and other neural systems work or fail. Computational modeling also allows us to bridge the gap between mechanism and phenomenology, from anatomy and dynamics to behavior and cognition.
