Jean-Marie Bouteiller joined the University of Southern California with a Masters in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (from University of Montpellier, FRANCE) to start a PhD in Computational Neuroscience with Prof. Michel Baudry. With this dual competency in Neuroscience and Engineering, he joined in 2002 the laboratory of Prof. Theodore W. Berger to start the development of a unique computational synaptic modeling platform that would take into account the multitude of mechanisms that comprise presynaptic terminal, cleft and postsynaptic spine. This platform has substantially grown throughout the years to include a large number of mechanisms and modulatory pathways as well as astrocytic modulation, while extending its hierarchical structure to span multiple biological scales, from biomolecular mechanisms to synapse, neuron and neuronal network.
