Stefano Masoli

Stefano Masoli holds a degree in Cellular Biology (1996 regulation – 5 years), a degree in neurobiology (new regulation – 2 years) and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences. The scientific interest is the development of realistic computational models, with the main focus on the reconstruction of the Purkinje cell, one of the most complex neuron of the Central Neurvous System.

The techniques used are the programming language Python and the simulator NEURON. Currently he is working within the Human Brain Project (HBP) in the optimization, with genetic algorithm, of the Purkinje cell model to be used in the cerebellar network.
