• Genotype to phenotype mapping of the mouse brain;
• Identifying, gathering and organizing multimodal human and non-human neuroscience data;
• Cognitive architectures;
• Novel methods for rule-based clustering or medical data;
• Neural configuration for neuromorphic computing systems;
• Virtual robotic environments, agents, sensory & motor systems;
• Theory of multiscale circuits.
