Abstract:

This course is for advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in neurobiology, physics, electrical engineering, computer science and psychology with an interest in Computational Neuroscience. A background in programming preferably in C or PASCAL is highly desirable. Limited to 20 students. This four-week course presents the basic techniques necessary to study single cells and neural networks from a computational point of view, emphasizing their possible function in information processing. The aim is to enable participants to simulate the functional properties of their particular system of study and to appreciate the advantages and pitfalls of this approach to understanding the nervous system.
