How does the brain work is one of the most intriguing questions for the 21st century: what are the logical rules that the brain follows in motor and cognitive processes? Several projects are carried out in our lab (Neuromathlabin the Brain Centerin Bar-Illan University) trying to use mathematics to help understand the brain. We use a wide spectrum of methods from Differential Geometry, Topology, Statistics, Data Mining, Liner algebra, and more, and we collaborate with scientist from other disciplines like Neurophysiology, Neuro-surgery, Electrical Engineering, Psychology, and more. In the talk I'll mention 7 projects and will elaborate on 3 of them.
