Welcome to CSE/NEUBEH 528

Computational Neuroscience

Spring 2013

Rajesh Rao and Adrienne Fairhall (Instructors)


Jeremiah Wander (TA)

TTh 10:30-11:50am in CSE 305

This course provides an introduction to basic computational methods for understanding what nervous systems do and for determining how they function. We will explore the computational principles governing various aspects of vision, sensory-motor control, learning, and memory. Specific topics that will be covered include representation of information by spiking neurons, processing of information in neural circuits, and algorithms for adaptation and learning. We will make use of Matlab demonstrations and exercises to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course. (Prerequisites: Familiarity with basic concepts in calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and probability theory).
