Relationships between hippocampal sharp waves, ripples and fast gamma oscillation: influence of dentate and entorhinal cortical activity

Paper by Buzsaki (2011).

This paper is cited in Logothetis et al (2012):

“Hippocampal transient high-gamma episodes have already been described in rats”

“In fact, it was recently shown that fast field-potential oscillations of rat hippocampus during sleep or immobility may be split into quantitatively distinct oscillatory patterns, high-gammafrequency oscillations and ripple oscillations, reflecting the activity of distinct subnetworks” (Sullivan et al., however, claim that both fast gamma and ripples “involve the same networks and share similar mechanisms”, see below). 294 more words


How to Parallelize Deep Learning on GPUs Part 1/2: Data Parallelism

In my last blog post I showed what to look out for when you build a GPU cluster. Most importantly, you want a fast network connection between your servers and using MPI in your programming will make things much easier than to use the options available in CUDA itself. 1,379 more words

Compiling OpenMM as a 64-bit library on Windows

A problem with developing scientific software on Windows is the difficulty in installing scientific packages, which typically provide only very minimal support. To one who isn’t well-versed in CMake, cross-compilation or cygwin, it can be quite daunting. 490 more words
