The 1990 version of the course enrolled a total of 22 students including three tenured faculty members for the first time. Digital Equipment Corporation provided the course with 25 DECstation 5000200s which provided more than ample computer capability. Each student was assigned to their own workstation which assured access to computing resources at all times. The range of course projects undertaken in the computer lab this year was also excellent see Appendix A. In general we found that students were able to advance their models considerably further than in previous years. This particularly reflects two years of experience teaching students how to use the GENESIS simulator, and also reflects the fact that a growing number of students have already had some experience with neural simulations and even GENESIS before entering the course.
