#12: On modeling of signaling pathways inside the neuron – with Avrama Blackwell

Most computational neuroscientists investigate electric dynamics in neurons or neural networks, but there is also computations going on inside neurons.

Here the key dynamical variables are concentrations of numerous different molecules, and the signaling is typically done in cascades of chemical reactions, called signaling pathways.

Today’s guest is an expert in this kind of modelling and is particularly interested in the signaling role of calcium.
