Modeling and computational analysis of biological neuronal networks and related topics including analysis of neural data and paramter estimation of neuronal models. The course consists of lectures, scientific paper presentations and computational work. Students are expected to develop an independent modeling/computational project by the end of the semester. This course is a continuation of "Introduction to Computational Neuroscience".

Please note that the University Drop Date deadline will be strictly enforced
Absences from class will inhibit your ability to fully participate in class discussions and problem solving sessions and, therefore, affect your grade
Tardiness to class is very disruptive to the instructor and students and will not be tolerated
Chatting in class using electronic devices will not be tolerated.
