This short course provides a three-days 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 2018 short course is sponsored by the Chinese Society for Neuroscience (Committee on Computational Neuroscience and Neural Engineering)，the SJTU Institute of Natural Sciences, and the SJTU Zhiyuan College.
