Spontaneous neural activity is observed in many developing neural networks. Multi-electrode arrays allow us to observe this spontaneous activity within a connected network of neurons. In the first part of my talk, I will present analysis of the spontaneous activity in two different systems, namely the retina and hippocampal cultures, in particular how the activity changes during development. In the second part, I will show recent modelling work that considers the roles that spontaneous activity may have upon development of neural connectivity.
