Many physiological measurements such as calcium or voltage-sensitive dye imaging, or local field potentials, sample neuronal activity at the scale of populations of neurons. The appropriate description for such mesoscopic (or macroscopic) scales is provided by population equations, which can be obtained from neural network models using mean-field techniques. In this workshop, we will review different mean-field approaches to neural systems, with a particular emphasis on mean-field models of spiking networks.
