Dr Pulin Gong

Neuroinformatics Program Coordinator

Dr Pulin Gong is a senior lecturer at The University of Sydney, where he is the head of the Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience Group. Before joining The University of Sydney, he was a staff scientist at RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan.

Pulin’s research interests are in the spatiotemporal dynamics of neural circuits. This means how the electrical activity of brain cells in the cortex changes over time and over cortical “space”. See this video for a visual representation of spatiotemporal dynamics. Pulin is interested in what these patterns and waves of activity say about information processing in the brain.
