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 Körding
Dates: July 30 - August 13, 2017
Location: Minneapolis, MN, USA

NSCI 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 highly recommended

NSCI 800: Guest lecture on multi-sensory integration

NSCI 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 analysis methods.

Lectures and seminar. Offered in Winter Term.

Prerequisite: permission of course coordinator.
