This is a hands-on introduction to neural modeling, run as a "workshop." The main part of your grade will be based on defining
a workable project, doing the background reading, implementing the model, and
writing up your (preliminary) results. Much
of the course will be spent in group and individual trouble-shooting
trying to get things to work and figuring out what it means for the
biology. This class is open to students who have little
programming/modeling experience as well as more advanced students.
Projects can range from the cellular to systems and cognitive levels. E-mail Dr. Troyer if you want more information or want to discuss
how to go about developing a project (the easiest way to get
started is to implement and then modify an already existing model).
Professor: Dr. Todd Troyer
