Visualization and Interaction of Neural Networks in Virtual Reality


Computational neuroscientists are interested in understanding the structure and function of the animal nervous system. Animal nervous systems are comprised of arrangements of connected neurons that transmit signals. These structures are commonly referred as neural networks. However, the connections of neural networks and their behavior are too complex to visualize, which creates an obstacle in our path to understanding them. The goal of this project is to use the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, and the Leap Motion 3D controller to interact with, and visualize, neural networks.
