Prof. Wulfram Gerstner is the head of the Laboratory Computational Neuroscience at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), Lausanne. He is a pioneer in the fields of spike-timing-dependent plasticity of synapses and modeling spiking neurons. He was one of the first to put forward the use of benchmarks for neuron models by comparing their responses to specific inputs to the experimentally measured data. Moreover, he was awarded the Valentino Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience in 2018. He is also the author of two influential textbooks „Spiking Neuron Models. Single Neurons, Populations, Plasticity” (2002) and “Neuronal Dynamics” (2014).
