Traditionally, the term dynamics means changes in a system evolving over time. However, in the brain action potentials propagate along axons to induce postsynaptic currents with different delays at many sites simultaneously. This fundamental computational mechanism evolves spatially to engage the neuron populations involved in brain functions. To identify and understand the spatial processing in brains, this workshop will focus on the spatial principles of brain dynamics that determine how action potentials and membrane currents propagate in the networks of neurons that brains are made of. We will focus on non-artificial dynamics, which excludes in vitro dynamics, interference, electrical and optogenetic stimulations of brains in vivo. Recent non-artificial studies of spatial brain dynamics can actually explain how sensory, motor and internal brain functions evolve. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss these recent results and identify common principles of spatial brain dynamics.
