Summer School in Computational
Sensory-Motor Neuroscience (CoSMo 2017)
The sixth edition of this summer school will focus on
multidisciplinary and translational approaches to computational
sensory-motor neuroscience. Lectures will be complemented by
hands-on Matlab simulation tutorials.
Organizers: Drs. Gunnar Blohm, Paul Schrater & Konrad
Dates: July 30 - August 13, 2017
Location: Minneapolis, MN, USA
401: Introduction to Modelling in Neuroscience
This course provides an introduction to the main modelling
approaches and theoretical concepts in Neuroscience. We discuss
the computational anatomy of the brain and how it implements
perception, learning, memory, decision making and motor control,
among other topics.
Lectures and seminar. Offered in Fall Term.
Prerequisite: STAT 263* or equivalent and standing in the fourth
year BSCH LISC degree; or permission of course director. ANAT
312*, or NSCI 323* or NSCI 324*, or PSYC 271*, or equivalent
NSCI 800: Guest lecture on
850: Computational Approaches to Neuroscience
This course provides an overview and hands on experience of the
most important computational approaches in Neuroscience. The
main topics covered include single cell and neural network
modelling, Bayesian approaches, State Space modelling and
Optimal Control Theory. More specific modelling approaches are
also discussed as well as some widely used computational data
Lectures and seminar. Offered in Winter Term.
