After giving a short introduction to biological neuronal networks and their main properties, I will explain why neurobiologists are interested by functional connectivity, which form a mathematical point of view can be seen as a local independence graph between neurons or brain areas. In particular, they think this might be a part of the neural code. I will show how one can infer this graph and obtain mathematical guarantee on it and this even if we observe only a very small subpart of a potentially infinite set of neurons.

Invited by Gilles Blanchard, Alexandra Carpentier and Sylvie Roelly
