#### Mathematical problems in neuroscience

Recent advances in neuroscience provide theoretical neuroscientists with a vast wealth of new data and open questions. The Fiete Lab and Ngoc Mai Tran have made several major contributions to the theory of grid cells in mammals and learning capacity of neural networks (see in particular “A binary Hopfield network with 1/\log(n) information rate and applications to grid cell decoding” and “Robust exponential memory in Hopfield networks“). Some questions have promising connections to the work on information theory and high dimensional stochastic geometry mentioned above.
