Biophysically-realistic neural network (BNN) models require quality design and optimisation methods in order to best advance understanding of complex neural processing. This talk presents a novel BNN model of the cochlear nucleus stellate microcircuit, which provides a robust spectral representation of sound and plays an essential part in speech communication. The model was optimised using rigorous sequential methods and simultaneous genetic algorithms. The results of the analysis demonstrate the utility of this approach for improving BNN models.
