Algorithm detective determines suitable neuro-model

In research, collecting data can be difficult, but fitting the data into a model that explains the observations is a challenge on another level. In neuroscience, many experiments measure the activity of neurons. However, to understand what exactly happens in a neuronal network, the data needs to be explained by a model. So, which model fits which data? A novel method developed by Pedro J. Gonçalves, Jan-Matthis Lueckmann, Michael Deistler, Jakob Macke and colleagues automates this process.
