Neuronal microcircuit has various non-random architectures. We are going to investigate relationships between structure and function in terms of network architectures. We extract effective networks beyond functional networks with taking care of causality encoded in interacting activities of neurons.
We call the research approach Microconnectome when satisfying these criteria:
1. Comprehensive many body problems beyond simple statistical distributions.
2. Quantitative evaluations of detailed networks designs based on Graph theory.
3. Nodes are generally neurons, sometimes, synapses.
We successfully demonstrated early examples in this research field.
