Earlier this autumn Gunnar, Malin, and Henrik traveled to New York to meet several collaborators at SUNY Downstate Health Science University, including Henriks co-supervisor, Salvador Dura-Bernal, and the group of Willam Lytton. We discussed modelling, neuronal networks, synaptic plasticity, future brain modelling projects, and explored their work-environment. This was very interesting for Henrik since he will spend one year in New York during his PhD. In the end of the visit Gunnar also gave a lecture presenting our research at Linköping University. Malin and Gunnar also visited other collaborators in New York, and Malin helped out during a clinical trial.

It was an educational trip and great stay! We would like to thank the Dura-Bernal lab, Neurosim lab, and many other for their great hospitality and nice discussions.
