The cerebral cortex plays a key role in high-level brain functions including sensory processing, memory, attention, planning, and the internal modeling of the external world. To make sense of the wealth of experimental data available on cortical anatomy and physiology, and the relation of its activity to behavior, theoretical approaches are essential. A variety of tools are used for this purpose: bottom-up modeling starting from biological knowledge, top-down including normative approaches, investigations of the coding properties at the single-neuron and neuronal population levels, analytical work and simulations, and comparisons between healthy and disease conditions. This workshop brings together a cross-section of these theoretical approaches toward unraveling the mechanisms used by the cerebral cortex for achieving its functionality, with the goal of facilitating mutual fertilization between the various approaches.
