This short course provides a week long introduction to the field of computational neuroscience. Theoretical studies of brain functions have focused on the information processing properties of individual neurons, neural circuits and networks, and systems. Computational neuroscience seeks to study these functions as revealed by neurophysiological experiments through computational means, and, as such, is high interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary. Our program brings together experimentalist, modelers, and theoreticians to illustrate the diverse approaches and disciplines that make up computational neuroscience.
The 2014 SJTU short course is sponsored by the SJTU Institute of Natural Sciences, the SJTU Zhiyuan College, and the Chinese Society for Neuroscience (Committee on Computational Neuroscience and Neural Engineering).
Room 601, Pao Yue-Kong Library, Minhang Campus, Shanghai Jiao Tong University
