The Tenth Computational Neuroscience Winter School


This online winter course provides 12 lectures in 2 weeks to introduce the field of computational neuroscience. Studies of brain functions have focused on the information processing properties of individual neurons, neural circuits and network systems. Computational neuroscience seeks to study these functions as revealed by neurophysiological experiments through computational means, and, as such, is highly interdisciplinary. Our winter school brings together experimentalists, modelers, and theoreticians to illustrate the diverse approaches and disciplines that make up computational neuroscience.

The winter school is sponsored by the Chinese Society for Neuroscience (Committee on Computational Neuroscience and Neural Engineering),CSIAM Mathematical Life Sciences, the SJTU Institute of Natural Sciences, Ministry of Education-Key Lab in Scientific and Engineering Computing and the SJTU Zhiyuan College.


January 12 ~ 19, 2021

Application and Registration

We will recruit 30-50 students in this winter school to keep a good instructor-student ratio. The selection is based on applicants’ background and research interests, and importantly, how they would potentially benefit from this winter school. Applicants from math, physics, computer science, engineering, biology, neuroscience and others are all welcome to apply. Please register online by December 31, 2020: https://jinshuju.net/f/Gpq1Vm
