The stream “Neuroscience” includes a broad range of topics from subcellular level to cognition and social behaviour considered mainly from computational point of view. It provides all required information to understand the biological bases of modelled processes.
Courses of the stream are:
- Neuron-Computer Interface in Dynamic-Clamp Experiments. Models of Neuronal Populations and Visual Cortex (6 h)
- Neuromechanics of Movement Control (10 h)
- Brain Computer Interfaces: Overview and Practical Examples (6 h)
- Algorithms and Mathematical Models for Brain Processes at Different Hierarchy Levels (6 h)
- Computing with Spikes (2 h)
- Models of the Auditory System (2 h)
- Circadian Clock in Mammals (2 h)
- Neurotransmitter Systems of Brain and Their Function (4 h)
- Dynamical Principles of Rhythm Generation (4 h)
- Oscillations and Synchronization (2 h)
- Brain Reverse Engineering (2 h)
- Applications of biosignal analysis for human state assessment in various conditions (2 h)
- Modelling signaling processes in neuronal networks of the brain (6 h)
Prerequisites: no prior knowledge in the field is expected.
